As of 4:30 p.m., Roger Wayne Colson had a huge hole where his front door used to be. Colson said he had just left his house on Saks Road and was walking toward his neighbor’s yard when a woman driving a Cadillac Escalade swerved off the road near the Anniston Church of the Nazarene, knocked over a mailbox, and flew straight into his home.
“I was just fixing to go inside,” Colson said. “Thank God I wasn’t.”
Colson said the woman was shaken up, but didn’t appear to be in critical condition. He said emergency responders took her to a hospital.
Capt. Ray Thompson of the Anniston Fire Department said he helped secure the scene and that no one was injured, but the driver was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Thompson said he did not have any other information about the driver.
The Star’s attempts Wednesday to reach the state troopers post in Jacksonville about the wreck were not immediately successful.
