BUFORD, Ga. —

A car crashed down a hill into a Buford home Sunday, according to Gwinnett County police.

It happened on Trailing Ivy Way. Gwinnett County police Cpl. Michele Pihera said officers were called to the location around 11:45 a.m.

A group of boys told Channel 2's Rachel Stockman they were riding bicycles near a driveway when they heard the car coming.

"The only reason we stopped is because we heard the tires. It would have not been good," one boy said.

Witnesses said the car crashed into several mailboxes before it flipped, struck a tree and hit the home. Police don't know how fast the car was going but witnesses estimated at least 70 mph.

Pihera said two injured people in the car were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

There was a family inside at the time, but they are OK.

"I heard the glass breaking as it was going in when it hit," resident Andre Kozlovski said.

Officers are still investigating the cause of the crash. They said the driver has not been charged.

"I believe they may be saying the vehicle was having some mechanical failure. It was a newly purchased vehicle, so whether or not that was it, we don't know," Pihera told Stockman.
