A 10-month-old infant survived being tossed from her crib and through a wall and a door frame early Monday morning after an SUV drove through her family's central Kentucky home.

"It almost sounded like a dump truck coming out of my living room, we felt the rumble of the house moving," the girl's father Kenneth Enright told Lex18.com.

Police told Lex18.com that the SUV driver hit a sign, then drove into the Enright's home, where three children were sleeping.

"I thought I lost my daughter," Enright told the website.

But underneath the front bumper of the SUV, wrapped in a purple blanket was Enright's daugther, scratched but otherwise OK. "You don't even know, my heart hit the floor when I thought she was gone," he told Lex18.com.

The Enrights say the impact of the SUV carried 10-month-old Aylina through walls and a door frame.

Police believe the crash was an accident and told Lex18.com they don't believe the driver was intoxicated or sleepy.
