Neighbor Maria Clinton said in Spanish that she saw the car traveling at a high rate of speed down Taft – perhaps as fast as 80 miles an hour.

"It looks like the car may have lost control. It careened off the side of the road," Medina said.

The late model Toyota Corolla struck the carport of the house, which received "significant structural damage," but the home itself is still habitable, Medina said.

Hollywood Police spent hours measuring the final feet the car traveled before hitting the house. Authorities counted four people inside the home when the crash happened. None were injured.
