The vehicle had a smashed windshield and the airbag had deployed.

“His face was busted up and the air bag was in pieces,” Jones said.

Trina Charles was inside her home at 214 Forest Hills Drive at the time of the crash.

“I heard it from the inside of my house,” she said. Her trash can was struck and tossed into Borton’s yard beyond where the car came to rest.

She said vehicles speed on the road all the time.

“I’ve even stood out here with a radar gun and clocked people,” she said.

Borton said police patrol the area and have set speed traps on the neighborhood street. A sign that electronically displays a driver’s speed has also been used on the street, he said.
