The crash was the second fatal accident to occur on the West Columbus property in just five years, according to the home's occupants.
"I turned off the TV to roll over and go to sleep... and, bam," Ann Paessun said. "I thought, 'What was that?' Then I thought, 'Oh dear God, not again.'"
The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The injured driver was transported to Mount Carmel West Hospital in stable condition.
Investigators are working to determine the cause of the accident, which occurred near a construction area.
