JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

One week after a car crashed into a Johnson City house, the city is putting in a guardrail.

Last Wednesday a car crashed into a house on Hamilton Street, narrowly missing an 8-month-old baby inside. Click here to read more.

Johnson City is now planning to install a guardrail at that curved section of road. "This job does have some curved rail because it is on the corner and sometimes that can take a little time. They have to actually bend that to match that specific radius on that corner," says Mike Arsenault, Assistant Public Works Director for Johnson City.

We're told the construction company should begin work on the new guardrail next week.
