A fire lieutenant with Brevard County (FL) Fire Rescue escaped serious injuries when a Mercedes traveling over 80 mph slammed into the fire station where he was sleeping on Wednesday, according to a report from WOGX FOX51.
According to the television station, the wall that the 26-year-old woman hit was just feet away from where the firefighter was sleeping. Photos show the bed littered with debris from the crash. The station reported the crash happened at Station 89 in Palm Bay.

The lieutenant who was not seriously injured, immediately started treating the driver who was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, according to the television station.
