ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- A car crashed into a house in southeast Albuquerque Sunday night.


Witnesses said the vehicle was speeding down Coal before hitting a curb, flipping and crashing near Hermosa. One witness estimated that the car was going about 90 mph. 

Neighbors said a woman had to be cut out of the car. 

People who live in the area said they are tired of the speeding along Coal.

"We cannot continue to allow this speeding to occur in this residential neighborhood," said District 6 Coalition President Gina Naomi Dennis. 

She and other neighbors have teamed up with a Lead/Coal Task Force created by the city to try and slow people down. 

Dennis said that people aren't catching on quickly enough and she's afraid something like this will happen again, or worse. 

"This is an emergency situation so the outcomes need to happen... right now," she said. 

The condition of the woman inside the vehicle has not been released. However, neighbors said a dog died in the crash.
