MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A family in Miramar is currently homeless after a car crashed into their home Monday morning on the corner of Southwest 66th Avenue and 21st Street.
Elliott Miller lives in the house with his mother and three siblings. He told CBS4’s Brooke Shafer that he had just left for work a few hours before the crash. The car drove straight into his bedroom, where he used to work from home.
“Last week, I worked from home all week last week. So if I worked from home yesterday, who knows. It could be me just sitting there working,” he said.
Miramar police said detectives were still investigating the crash, but the driver responsible said he saw someone come out from a nearby house with a gun. The driver told police he panicked, hit the gas and lost control.
A building inspector deemed the home unsafe on Monday.
“Accidents happen anywhere. And when you see this, you know, they’re great neighbors, they’re great people. It happens to good people. That’s all I have to say,” said neighbor Pedro Arroyo, who brought water and food to the family on Tuesday morning.
The host is a single mother of three children, including a 14-year-old boy with a disability. She said her son uses a wheelchair, making it hard for them to get anywhere. She and several of her children slept outside their home in the car on Monday night to track their possessions, which have yet to be brought up.
“I told my mom it was just a moment,” Miller said. “Moments like these don’t last forever. We will get over it. “
