ACWORTH, GA (CBS46) -

Police tell CBS Atlanta News that a woman suffered minor injuries after crashing into a house in Acworth.

Just after 9 a.m., the woman fell asleep at the wheel and hit a house used as a workshop in the 5400 block of Woodstock Rd, according to police.

Homeowner Gordon Ponsford said he uses the house as a workshop to work on historical preservation.

He came down to his shop in this morning and discovered the damage and the woman walking around his shop. He called 911 for help.

"She seemed to be disoriented," said Ponsford.

Ponsford said he is very lucky his artifacts were not damaged, but most importantly the driver wasn't seriously injured.

The woman apparently drove 500 yards and dodged several large trees before striking the side of the workshop.
