( – A South County woman is left with a mess of damage after a driver crashes in her front yard.

On Tuesday, police say a driver clipped a vehicle’s outside mirror on I-55 near Loughborough.

The car then got off at Weber Road where it hit a light pole and came to a stop in the front yard.

St. Louis police cited the driver for a suspended license and running a stop sign.

The homeowner says that’s a slap on the wrist.

“I was wondering why this lady didn’t go to jail after she crashed into the house,” said Sharon Smith, the homeowner. “She sideswiped a car on the highway and caused so much damage. And she just got a ticket. They let her drive off with her husband.”

Police say the driver passed a sobriety test following the incident.

The investigation is still ongoing.
