An elderly couple found themselves parked in one of the front rooms of a rental home on Wednesday.
Sgt. J.J. Hernandez of the Cuero Police Department said a witness saw the entire incident. According to the witness, the driver of a beige Mercury Grand Marquis was driving south on Frobese Street. He grazed a parked burgundy Ford Fusion at the corner of Frobese and Moss Lane. The driver over-corrected by taking a hard right, driving onto the front yard and into the front room at 306 Frobese St. The witness went over to the driver to see if he was okay. The witness said the driver of the Marquis still had the vehicle in drive with his foot on the accelerator. The witness managed to stop the elderly man from accelerating and put the vehicle in park.
Cuero’s Emergency Medical Service and the Cuero Fire Department responded to the scene. EMS took vitals to ensure the couple was stable. No one was injured.
