PUEBLO, Colo. A woman who lost her husband when a car came crashing through her living room wall is talking about the horrifying ordeal.

It happened March 11th in Pueblo where a white Jaguar was driven into a house in the 1900 Block of Hollywood Drive. Johnie Hagerman was killed; his wife Lori was injured.

Lori Hagerman says they never thought a car would smash into their home while they were watching TV.

"It was just kind of surreal. It was like, it came throguh, stuff was just flying everywhere. It took a minute to realize what happened... Then I realized, oh my God, there's a car in my house. I could reach out to touch the car; it was that close to me. I was hollering to him... and he just never responded to me." Hagerman says.

Hagerman says she'd been happily married to her husband, Johnie, for 8 years. She says he was a very positive person and loved being his family.

"It doesn't seem fair that sitting in our basement watching TV... and he's gone," said Hagerman.

Police recently arrested Victor Montour for this crime last week. According to Police, Montour ran from the accident and then lied to them about where he was.

Hagerman said, "He actually went up the stairs and when he got up to the top of the stairs, I said 'hey, where are you going?' he said 'I'm going to call some people'... He crawled out over on top of me, and then out the window."

11 News has been reporting that Montour's arrest papers say he has a revoked license. Hagerman says she's relieved he's finally behind bars.

"Somebody finally had to pay the price for him and it was my husband," said Hagerman.
