SUV Crashes Through Huber Heights Home
HUBER HEIGHTS -- It was a scary wake-up call for the people inside this house.
Witnesses say a driver was going about 50 mph and crashed an SUV through the brick wall.
A neighbor who was getting home right before the crash happened said he saw the SUV whipping around the street and the car jumped a curb.
One witness says it looked like the driver popped a tire right before crashing into the house
"On my way here I saw some shredded tire out in Shaw Road and some more down the road here, so I'm not sure if it's from their vehicle or not, we'll collect that to see if it matches," Huber Heights Police Sgt. Chris Kash said.
Police say the driver, later identified as Esteban Alvaranga Gonzalez, kicked his way out of the debris from the garage and took off on foot.
Gonzalez' passenger stayed behind and waited for police. That passenger pointed out where Gonzalez ran and police were able to track him down. When they found Gonzalez, police say he was lying on the ground. They say it looked like he was trying to hide. He had a cell phone with him possibly trying to get someone to pick him up. Both the driver and passenger were taken to the hospital.
Gonzalez is expected to be booked into jail once released from the hospital.
Police say Gonzalez was likely speeding while intoxicated and is facing numerous traffic charges.
Fortunately, no one inside this house was injured. However, the house sustained major structural damage. The Huber Heights Fire Department said it is uninhabitable until it can be inspected further.
In the garage you can see a truck is parked there and that's what likely stop that SUV from going all the way inside the house.
