The truck rammed into her home, just feet away from the bed she was lying in with her 5-year-old son.

"We were laying in the bed and it was almost like you could feel the impact, even though we weren't hurt or anything like that," said Kimber. "It was very scary, very scary to be woken up like that. So I just grabbed my cell phone, grabbed my son and called 911."
