    FOX13’s Siobhan Riley spoke with a woman who said she witnessed the chaos. 

    She said she doesn’t know who the driver is, but children as young as 4-years-old were outside when the driver nearly hit them.

    The smoke was so thick that neighbors said they could barely see. 

    “Are our kids safe? Are they going to live?” the woman said. “Because we don’t know if they going to hit them or kill them or what.”

    The skid marks and tire tracks are still visible in the roadway and yard the car ended up in.

    Neighbors said a little girl almost was hit. 

    MPD said no one has come forward to file a police report about the incident. 

    Officers said a video of the incident was sent to them through Facebook, and they are looking into it.
