Woman who was driving while praying with her eyes closed hits house
MARY ESTHER — A 28-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation after driving into a Mary Esther house Thursday morning.
The woman told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies she was praying at the time and had her eyes closed, according to the OCSO.
The Fort Walton Beach woman was traveling eastbound on Marcia Drive when she failed to stop at a stop sign, went through an intersection and into the yard of a home on Miramar Drive.
She tried to back out but got stuck in the sand, the OCSO said.
She was cited for reckless driving with property damage.
No one in the house was injured.
