CARLISLE, N.Y. — Carolina Herrera was at work when a collision knocked out power to the entire building and knocked out all of her computer systems.
When she woke up the next morning, her house was a mess, and her daughter was injured.
The crash happened when the driver of a car pulled off the side of her building and hit her car.
The damage was estimated to be $7,500.
Carolina, a 30-year-old freelance graphic designer and artist, decided to put up her house and the whole neighborhood to get insurance money so she could fix her damaged car.
She was able to get a new one with the help of her friends.
“It was like the most amazing thing, I had no idea what was going on,” she said.
I could not have been more grateful.
I had my house to myself.
I could not believe how grateful I was for the help, said Herrera.
The car insurance company is calling it the biggest hit they’ve had to deal with in years.
Caroline Herrera says it was like a miracleCarolina has had to replace her car and a few other parts in the past.
Herrera said it was “like a miracle.”
Her house is currently covered under a car insurance policy, but she’s still in the process of getting it repaired and putting it back on the road.

It was her job to fix it.

“This is just so amazing to me.
It is a miracle,” Herrera said.
“The community rallied together.
It just blew our minds.”
