    The boy, however, was under the covers and untouched.

    "It was very smokey, dust all over the place, debris, glass," says Eric Stemen, the boy's father. "Just thank God he was not harmed."

    MDFR says no one was taken to the hospital, and that the boy walked away from the crash with no injuries.

    The driver was not transported to the hospital, but the family tells NBC 6 they did see her across the street following the accident receiving care from paramedics.

    It is not yet known if the driver will face any charges related to the accident.

    This is a developing story and will be updated as new information becomes available.
