SUV plows into Roswell home, overnight

Posted: Updated:
A Cobb County family is pleading with county officials after a car came crashing onto their home in the middle of the night.

According to Cobb County police, the accident happened on the 4500 block of Brigade Court in Roswell.

Crews on the scene say the car lost control around 1:30 a.m. and landed wedged between the house and an embankment, narrowly missing two children who were asleep in a front room.

Authorities tell FOX 5 the driver was driving under the influence and lost control coming around a curve.

The owner of the home is very upset because they've been asking the city to build guard rails in the area for a while.

Cobb County officials tell FOX 5 their hands are tied until the Department of Transportation looks at this accident and decides whether there is justification for a guardrail.

The driver was taken to a local medical center.
