Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house.

"Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read.

Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went through an intersection, and into a home across the street.

"I drove to the accident site and entered the home where the car had come to a stop on its side," Romney said in a statement. "I opened the driver side door and spoke with the four passengers inside the car. Miraculously, they appeared to have no major injuries. I was able to help each of them get out of the car and lift them down to the ground."

There was little independent corroboration of Romney's account, but NBC affiliate KSL reported a car accident that took place Thursday night outside Salt Lake City that matches the one Romney describes, both in visuals and in geography.

According to the report, this is the second time a car has slammed into the home, which seems to be at a precarious curve in the road. The sheriff called it a "miracle" that no one was injured.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
