TEMPE, Ariz. -- There were some scary moments for a Tempe family after a car barreled towards their house Friday evening.

A man named Mike Mazon who lives in the area of Dorsey and Broadway told 3TV that the driver of the car first hit a car at his neighbor’s house across the street.

Mazon said he went to check on the situation, which is when the driver put the car in reverse and hit the gas.

“I really didn’t know which way to run, it went right towards me and missed a few cars and hit my boat,” said Mazon. “Nobody got hurt, he was going so fast he could have gone through the house very easily.”

Mazon’s family was inside the home, but fortunately the car only hit his boat.

The driver was taken to the hospital.
