The driver has been transported to CaroMont Regional Medical Center.

Dylan Windham lives in the house with his dad and brother.

Dylan said his dad was home and had just gotten up to switch on the lights in his aquarium on his way to the kitchen. Dylan said as his dad stopped at the aquarium, he heard a loud noise - like a gunshot - and hit the floor.

That’s when he noticed an F-150 in the room he’d just been sitting in.

Dylan said the driver seemed to be having a seizure.

Dylan had got off work 30 minutes early on Saturday, but said The Lord told him to stay and keep working, anyway.

Thankfully, no one in the house was injured.
