A car that officials said was apparently speeding in the Port Reading-Sewaren section of Woodbridge yesterday went out of control and struck a home on that street, according to a report on abclocal.com.
The accident happened at approximately 11 am on Friday, February 1, said Ana Velez, who lives nearby and who is friends with the woman who owns the home struck by the automobile.
The driver was issued a summons for excessive speeding, abclocal.com said. The automobile had two passengers, but neither was hurt, nor was anyone in the house struck by the car injured.
"No one was hurt, but my neighbor [in this house was shaken by it because she said if she would have been in the house she could [have] been dead," Velez posted on Woodbridge Patch's Facebook page.
Velez said that complaints to the police about speeders over the past year caused them to put in radar to nab speeders.
"A child almost got struck by a car in the park by Matthew Jago School," Velez said.
"Something has to be done about the speeding around here."
