An investigation is under way in South Los Angeles after a car smashed into the side of a house.

The crash happened Saturday afternoon at 119 W. 55th St.

A man who lives there said he was eating and talking with his mother when he heard a loud noise and felt the house shake.

He ran outside and saw that a car had crashed through a brick wall and into his home. He said the driver told him that she mistakenly pressed the accelerator instead of the brakes.

No one was hurt.
