A minivan drove into a house Sunday afternoon.

The crash happened around 2:40 p.m. in the 140 block of Marion Drive, near Stewart Avenue and Lamb Boulevard.

The owner of the minivan was riding in the passenger seat when the crash happened. She told 13 Action News she let her friend drive her van since they were heading to a store in an unfamiliar area to her.

The van owner says they were having a conversation when all of sudden her friend just stopped talking. He drove straight through a stop sign, onto the curb and into the home. He says he blacked out but does not know why.

There was a couch right where the minivan went through, where the homeowners usually sit. They told 13 Action News that they were sitting on that couch only 10 minutes before the crash.

No injuries were reported.
