Behind the brick wall is 18-year-old Giovani Austin’s bedroom.
“I flew straight out of my bed and hit the floor and I was like whoa, just in shock,” Austin told us after he was checked out by paramedics. When we asked him how he was physically feeling he said, “I’m feeling good, I’m just in shock right now, everything was moving fast, and I’m just blessed.”
The driver was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. He is not facing any criminal charges. FHP stated the driver was cited for careless driver. His name has not been released.
