SUNNYSIDE, Wash.-- A Sunnyside family got an early morning wake up call when a drunk driver crashed into their home.
It happened at around 3am on the 1,300 block of South Street.
Police say Jorge Pacheco Jr., 20, failed to stop at an intersection, lost control of his car, and crashed into the house.
People were home when the accident happened and say they were shocked to see the car sticking out of their garage.
"My room's just right here, behind this wall here. Me and my wife and then my little girl was with us, and she's eight months old, so that was a big scare for us," said Alex Sotelo who lives at the home.
Luckily no one inside the home was hurt and the driver only had minor injuries.
He was arrested for driving under the influence and illegal possession of marijuana.
Damage to the home is estimated at $20,000-$40,000.
