HOUSTON, TX - A Houston woman got a smashing start to her weekend, but probably not the one for which she hoped. Just before 6am Friday, a red SUV slammed into her unit at the Regency Square Apartments in southwest Houston. Adding insult to almost-injury, the woman was behind the wheel.

The crash did some serious damage, even forcing the evacuation of the building. Crews did a quick check for structural damage and ended up letting tenants back in.

Neighbors didn't seem to flustered by the scene or by the fact that in addition to having an SUV in her apartment, the woman also had a bun in the oven.

"Yeah, she's pregnant," confirmed one neighbor. "Accidents happen."

Firefighters on scene said the woman wasn't hurt at all, but was probably a little shaken up. They predict it won't take her long to recover; cleanup after her morning mishap will probably take a bit longer.
