Bed saves couple from car crash

HALTOM CITY, Texas (AP) - October 21, 2008

Ben Larmouth and his wife, Sarah, credit a mattress with saving them, after a speeding car smashed through their bedroom wall.

The couple was asleep in their Fort Worth, Texas, area home when the driver lost control.

He hit two curbs, then smashed into the house.

The Larmouths were sent to a hospital to treat scrapes and bruises.

Police say the 30-year-old driver ran way, but he was caught at his home a few blocks away.

Officers report getting the driver's address off of a traffic ticket issued by Fort Worth police, which was found in the car.
