Dude turns in wrong driveway, then crashes through house

A man made a wrong turn early Tuesday morning and ended up giving some homeowners an unwelcome wake-up call. The 23-year-old driver, Christopher Pearson, soon realized that not only had he turned into the wrong driveway, but he had driven into somebody else's house.

Police got the call at 5:15 a.m. and arrived within five minutes to find Pearson's 1996 Monte Carlo sticking out of the house. "It was almost completely inside the residence," police Chief Randy Johnson said.

Pearson blamed the crash on mechanical failure. But police said the driver was drunk. "He blew twice the legal limit," Johnson said of the alcohol breath test. "So I would have to say that is what caused it." Full article here.
