CLARK, NJ - A young man driving west on Oleander Way was unable to stop his vehicle and plowed into the home of Kathy and Joe Hudzik this morning at the intersection of Prospect and Liberty Streets. No one was seriously injured in the accident, but the home and vehicle parked inside the garage sustained damage.

Kathy was just getting out of bed and Joe was working on his computer when they felt the crash. They had no idea what had happened but said the whole house shook. 

When asked how they planned to manage the wreckage in the garage, Joe said, "I am going to get a dumpster and get rid of everything." To this Kathy added, "Everything is replaceable and thank goodness no one was killed."   

The driver was pulled out of the back window of the car, said Kathy.  Emergency medical personnel treated the driver at the scene.
