"It hit right here . It hit right there and then the car cause it was small car went airborne," said Freddie Glaspy.

Freddie Glaspy lives just feet away from where a car went flying and crashed into the second story of his neighbors house off of E. 61st Street.

A blue tarp now covers the spot where the car collided into the building after taking down several tree limbs.

Guy and Carter were pronounced dead on scene. 

 The homeowner was in his kitchen washing dishes at the time of the crash. He was not hurt.

A dog inside the car survived the crash.
