CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It was a scary situation for a Clarksville family -- after a car crashed into the home. The 62-year-old driver was unresponsive when police arrived, and had to be given Narcan, a drug used to reverse drug overdoses.

Clarksville police have charged Bailey Roberts with DUI after crashing a Ford Focus into a house on Greenwood Avenue Monday Night.

Aurora Barker was inside the house with her two younger brothers during the accident. She went outside to check on the driver. She says Roberts, was holding up his head, not moving or responding to questions. When police arrived, they gave the man Narcan and he improved immediately.

Barker's mom rushed home, thankful no one was hurt. "I hugged my children so tight because I was so happy they were okay," she said.

Right before the crash, police say a witness saw Roberts sitting in the car stopped in the wrong lane. Robers was booked into the Montgomery County Jail and charged with DUI and driving on a revoked license. His bond was set at $1,000.
