TEMPE, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Marilyn Barrington spoke to Fox 10 from behind her screen door, as she was still shaken by the impact she felt early Thursday morning.
"I looked out my back window to see what my cats had done, but it wasn't the cats, it was this out there," she said.
A white Monte Carlo came to rest on its side but only after smashing through the wall in Barrington's front yard.
Tempe police say the driver was going too fast, lost control and hit the wall.
The passenger was thrown from the car and found in the street. The driver had to be cut out by firefighters.
The steel rail tracks remained in place and were visible once the car and debris were removed.
Now, Barrington and her neighbors are wondering what else they have to do to slow drivers down.
