Lisa Martinez was lying in bed and had just switched off her TV Monday night when she found her dresser on top of her.

The renter said she was also covered with parts of her house and the car that struck it.

Fortunately, she was not injured, but the driver of the car was.

The accident happened about 7:22 p.m. on Ky. 245.

Rebecca Colby was driving north when the Ford she was in left the roadway, crossed the southbound lane in front of Handy Food Mart, went down an embankment in front of H&H Enterprises and hit the house in the 4000 block of New Shepherdsville Road, according to a press release by Capt. Mike Clark of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office.

Martinez was in the room the car went part of the way into.

Colby told sheriff’s deputies she thinks she fell asleep at the wheel, but woke upon impact. Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown into the windshield.

Colby was transported by Nelson County EMS to the University of Louisville Hospital for possible injuries.

Deputy Dennis Wells worked the accident.
