KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Police say the driver in a Honda Accord drove through a stop sign, jumped a curb and smashed into a home with six people inside, but luckily, all the family inside the home managed to get out safely.

The crash happened near the intersection of 7th and Olympia at around 5:15 Sunday morning.

Inside the home, a father, mother, their three children and a relative were sleeping.
