    A 41-year-old man taking his driver's license road test with an instructor on Monday afternoon lost control of the driving school's SUV and plowed into a home on Cook Road in Durham.
    No one was injured when the vehicle came to a crashing halt in the bedroom Linda Roberts shares with her husband.

    "I'm just devastated. I've lost my house," Roberts said. "I don't know where I'm going to stay."

    A neighbor's grandson saw the crash.

    "My grandson comes running into the house and says, 'Grandma, grandma, a car just ran through your neighbor's house,'" said Julia Cromartie. "So I jumped up and started running and said, 'Well, where are they? Are they in the house?'"

    Luckily, the Roberts weren't home at the time, but family members rushed to the house after hearing about the crash. Four generations of family have lived, slept over, eaten and played at the house over the years, Roberts said.

    "Linda usually is in that back room laying down in that bed, in that same spot where that SUV came in," said Veronica Roberts, the homeowner's sister. "I just truly thank God because she's still here, my brother's still here."

    "The bed was pushed back, and that's the bed they sleep in," said Asia Mitchell, Roberts' niece. "We could have lost two lives today, and we're just thankful we're all here."

    Family members said they believe the driver was speeding. Police haven't said whether he'll face charges.
