DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WESH) - Investigators say romance behind the wheel is to blame for an early morning car crash into a home near Daytona Beach, Florida early Friday morning.

Officials said 30-year-old Asia Walker was driving when she and her boyfriend were getting a little affectionate.

"She told the investigating trooper that her and the boyfriend were getting a little amorous and the trooper suspects that's probably why she lost control of the vehicle," said Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes.

Walker lost control of the vehicle and slammed into an unoccupied home. The vehicle went all the way through the house.

The impact was so dramatic, the pressure blew a window in another part of the house out.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers said Walker was injured when debris fell inside the vehicle. She was taken to Halifax Medical Center to be checked out.
