Teen survives freak car-house crash in NY

March 7, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A 15-year-old boy was lucky he survived a freak accident in New York State.

The boy was sitting on his living room couch, when a Jeep barreled through the wall.

Authorities said the driver of a minivan went into diabetic shock and lost control of his van and crashed into the Jeep which was parked in the teen's driveway.

The impact sent the Jeep through the wall.

The boy walked away with just a cut on his hand.

He managed to dodge getting hit by flying two-by-fours, some of which wound up stuck in the wall above the television.
