OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

For the second time in less than a year, a car has smashed into a home on Ogden Avenue in Ocean Springs. It happened Thursday night about 9:30pm. 

The three people living in the home weren't hurt, but they were quite shaken. JoLynn Myers said it sounded like a bomb going off. She was sitting in a chair in the living room when the car hurtled through the front window. 

Police and firefighters were on the scene within minutes. They helped JoLynn, her sister, and her nephew clean up the mess. They also moved the refrigerator to another area of the kitchen, since the crash knocked out electricity in a good part of the home. 

JoLynn said most of Friday will be spent patching up the home and contacting insurance agents. Even with the mess, JoLynn said it could have been worse and she's just thankful no one was injured. 

The driver of the car was arrested and booked on DUI charges.
