PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Homeowners cleaned up and boarded up a window after a vehicle crashed into the front of their house.

Pembroke Pines police were on the scene and said the incident happened after 10 p.m., Sunday, near the intersection of Southwest 71st Avenue and Fifth Street.

A red Kia SUV knocked down a wall and shattered glass on the face of a Pembroke Pines home.

The driver of the SUV was identified as 38-year-old Analia Schwindt-Berrios.

She was charged with DUI and DUI property damage.

Schwindt-Berrios appeared before a judge Monday afternoon and was held on $3,500 bond.

“She literally drove into someone’s home, right into it, and thankfully no one was hurt,” said Eric Linder, state prosecutor.

Neighborhood camera footage and surveillance video from the owners of the home showed the SUV that crashed right into the front of their house, which caused smoke and debris to fill the air.

Video from Sunday night showed the inside of the home as the glass window and front wall took most of the damage from the vehicle.

“All we heard was a loud bang like a big thunder kind of noise and the house vibrated,” said a woman who lives in the house.

The homeowners said the car drove straight into their residence at full speed.

“We saw a lot of dust in the air and half a person’s vehicle inside my living room,” the woman recalled.

The homeowners rushed to see whether the woman driving was hurt. They said the driver was arrested after the crash because she was drunk.

“I asked, ‘Are you injured? Is there anyone else in the van’ She said, no, and she was just panicked,” said the woman homeowner. “[She said,] ‘Let me go home, let me go home, let me leave. I need to leave.’ She said, ‘Don’t call the police.’ They determined based on their investigation that I believe that she was DUI, and they arrested her.”

A contractor that the family hired assessed the damage, and 16 feet were taken off the front of the residence. Repairs will cost thousands of dollars, but the family is thankful no one was hurt when the car barreled into the home.

The woman homeowner, also a mother of two, said her children had left just moments before the crash.

“Thank God they weren’t here at that time, and usually we’ll sit at that time in the living room, but luckily we were in the bedroom,” said the mother.

Law enforcement closed off the area for several hours as they pulled the car out following the crash.

Police continued to investigate the cause of the incident, Monday morning.

No injuries have been reported.

Schwindt-Berrios posted bond on Monday.
