    Driver told witnesses, police that he didn't know what happened to cause the crash.

    A Dallas family was on the receiving end of a rude awakening Wednesday when their own car came crashing into their master bedroom.

    It happened at 12:45 a.m. in the 2300-block of South Ewing Avenue in South Oak Cliff.

    A driver, who police have not yet identified, was reportedly speeding down Ewing when he lost control, drove through a neighbor's yard, slammed through the family's fence and knocked a maroon Mercedes through the wall and into the bedroom.

    The driver then continued through the yard, drove through another fence and came to a rest on an adjoining street.

    A neighbor, who came to see what the commotion was, told NBC 5 that the driver got out of his car and staggered around for a minute and said he had no idea what had just happened.

    The driver reportedly offered no explanation for the crash to police, officers on the scene told NBC 5.

    The driver was taken to a local hospital with injuries to his hand.

    The family of five that lives in the home was helped at the scene by the American Red Cross, and are now reportedly staying with relatives.
