Corvette nearly careens into Granite Hills family's home

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A classic Corvette nearly careened into a family's home Friday night, with a teenager behind the wheel. 

"Oh yea, we were just on the other side of the wall that she was just inches from hitting," said Tyler Churchill. 

El Cajon police say the 16-year-old driver was probably driving too fast down the hill.

"We have a lot of really nice cars that live up the street," Churchill said. "They come flying by all the time."

She lost control, ending up with the car backward and on top of some cement blocks.

Churchill and his family came running out when they heard the crash.

"We were all just hanging in the garage," he said. "I was changing a dirt bike tire, we heard a really long screech and a kind of gnarly crash, and we couldn't see anything because it was really dusty."

Thankfully, the driver and everyone else made it out okay. 

"The first thing we did was run out and make sure she was ok," Churchill said. "I just can't believe she came down that driveway, missed cars by a few inches, missed my house by a few inches, I mean it was really just inches from everything, it was crazy."
 
Police tell 10News they do no suspect DUI.
