An SUV crashed into a house
on Ramblewood Circle in Decatur after the man driving it suffered a medical problem
and lost control of his vehicle.
The driver did not survive the incident; his 13-year-old daughter was riding with him when the accident happened.
A 5-year-old inside the damaged house suffered minor injuries.
"Her dad made a statement, something about
holding his chest, 'I can't breathe,'" said neighbor rJackie Phillips.
Marlon Bethea told WSB TV the SUV crashed into his kitchen where his children were sitting.
"My kids flew from one side of the wall to the other from where the truck busted through the kitchen," said Bethea. "One of the cabinets fell and hit my youngest daughter in the head."
A DeKalb Fire official said the SUV broke a gas line when it crashed into the house.
Neighbors told the TV station the SUV driver
is a handyman known and liked by many area residents.
"My heart just broke," neighbor Cynthia Lavergne told the TV station. "We all know him, love him. He's a good guy."
