Woman left homeless after car crashed into house

Posted: Updated:

It was on FOX 7 where you first saw the story of a senior citizen, whose home was smashed in by a car this weekend. Well now because of that incident that woman could soon be homeless.

When FOX 7 first showed up Sunday to Bertha Haywood's east Austin rental home she was in good spirits just hours after a car crashed through her wall. No one was injured inside, but the driver got away.

Two days later Haywood's positive attitude has turned to frustration.

Haywood says her landlord put her up in a hotel nearby, but after two days the hotel room she is staying in will no longer be paid for.

"My landlord called me about I'd say three hours ago and told me that she couldn't do anything about my staying anywhere else," said Haywood, "She said now I have to fend for myself."

Haywood says she has to be out of the hotel by noon Wednesday. We were unable to reach her landlord for comment.

If you have any information about the driver who crashed into her rent home contact Austin Police.
