Everything on the Indianapolis family’s kitchen table — an open jug of apple juice, some mail, napkins and a mug — seem normal enough, photos show.
Except, of course, the red car that had plowed into the unsuspecting family’s home, ripping through the garage and into its kitchen. The surprise collision left the family’s home in disarray, photos show.
The destruction happened just before 2 p.m. on Thursday in northeast Indianapolis, when a 21-year-old driver missed her turn, jumped off the roadway in her Honda and barreled into the home, according to Indianapolis firefighters.
The vehicle’s impact pinned a 15-year-old girl in the home between the kitchen table and a wall, firefighters said.

Firefighters rescued the trapped girl when they got to the scene. She was uninjured, but was taken to be checked out, firefighters said.
Police are now investigating the crash as well.
There’s about $50,000 in damage to the home’s kitchen and garage, firefighters estimated.
Photos from the scene, posted by the fire department on Facebook and Twitter, show the path the car took from the road, over a sidewalk, across the lawn and into the garage.
It appears the vehicle narrowly missed hitting three trees before ultimately striking the house.
The crash has displaced the three kids and two adults who live at the home, firefighters said.
