VIDEO: Car Slams House at 100 mph

( – An elderly woman from Missouri suffered a horrific death after her car “went airborne” while she was driving and slammed into a house, almost killing a 3-year-old child.

The incident occurred in Lemay, a town of about 17,000 people in the southern part of Missouri’s St. Louis County, The Washington Times reports.

The stupefying crash happened last Tuesday and was caught on security footage by a neighbor’s doorbell camera from across the street.

The video, which shows how the 73-year-old driver’s vehicle flew sideways at a local home at a staggering speed, went viral on social media.

The car veers off the road and gets airborne before it reaches the camera’s range. It is seen “clipping something in front of a neighboring house,” after which it flies over a parked red car and explodes into the home.

The driver of the vehicle, who was identified as Cheryl Doyton, 73, was declared dead at the crash scene, according to KTVI, a St. Louis-based Fox affiliate.

“It’s not known why the car was going airborne, though the video makes it look like an extreme case of speeding or the kind of crash one sees in action movies,” The Times comments.

Social media users have argued that the car must have been going at least 100 miles per hour for such a strong slam.

However, according to the Lemay Police Department, the crash “was not an apparent speeding situation” and might have resulted from a medical emergency that Doyton might have suffered while she was behind the wheel.

A 3-year-old boy was lucky to have survived the incident as the older woman’s crashing vehicle pushed into a wall the bed that he was sitting on at that moment.

“Could’ve totally hit him, yes. Missed him by inches,” homeowner Derek Wentzel told KSDK-TV.

The boy is the son of Wentzel’s friends, who were visiting when the latter’s house was struck. Thus, Doyton remained the only victim of the shocking incident.
