A new car full of teens smashed a suburban Detroit home shortly after midnight.

Authorities say there may have been as many as five people in the Dodge Dart, which landed on its side after striking the attached garage early Saturday in Rochester Hills. All survived, although the 16-year-old driver and a passenger were taken to a hospital. Three others fled.

The homeowner, Carol Flynn, is an emergency room nurse who was able to help the injured. She told radio station WWJ that she smelled alcohol. She says the crash made a "tremendous noise" and felt like an "earthquake."

Two vehicles in Flynn's garage were damaged. She and her kids were not hurt.
