CENTRAL ISLIP - Police say a Central Islip woman was nearly killed after her friend allegedly drove into her home intentionally two times.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. yesterday at a home on E. Walnut Street.

The driver crashed into the garage first, left the scene and came back to cause more destruction, neighbors say.

The homeowner spoke to News 12 Long Island’s Erin Colton off camera and said the man who did this was her friend.

The woman told News 12 he was inside with her moments before, they got into a fight and he then stormed off.  Minutes later, she says he was driving his car into her house.  She says it was done intentionally, especially since he knew exactly where her bedroom was.

The Town of Islip building inspector is assessing the damage.

Police have not made any arrests, but they say they are actively looking for the driver.
