A car that veered off Lexington Parkway in St. Paul Tuesday afternoon left a gaping hole in the side of a house, the Pioneer Press reports.

Fortunately, a woman inside and her 2-year-old granddaughter, who was napping and remained asleep during the crash, were unharmed.

The Toyota Camry went up an embankment, struck the house in the 1100 block of James Avenue and rolled over. The 60-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. She showed no signs of intoxication, according to police.

The mother of the toddler, Laura Wallace, tells the newspaper that cars often speed down Lexington. Wallace said her car has been hit twice while parked in front of the house.

Wallace, her mother and daughter, along with Wallace's 5-year-old son are displaced for now. She was staying at her mother's house while her home in North Dakota, destroyed by flooding, is being rebuilt.
