DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. —

A woman and her three grandkids say they were terrified after an SUV crashed into their Stone Mountain home.

The accident happened about 4 p.m. Tuesday on Big Valley Lane.

Byfield spoke to one of the children, an 8-year-old girl, who said she was in a bedroom with her grandmother and younger sisters when they heard a big boom that shook the house.

The noise sent the family screaming and the grandmother told them to leave the home. They escaped from the back of the home.

"My sisters were crying. I was crying. It was hard for me to see," said Nylah Cater.

She said her family saw the driver outside the ravaged home. Nylah said he told them his brakes failed.

The driver refused to speak with Byfield about the incident, but he did apologize to the family.

Someone picked up the driver from the scene. A fire department was there when Channel 2 Action News arrived.

Byfield is trying to find out if the driver is facing charges.

No injuries were reported.
