LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A pickup truck slams into a parked car, trees, and a house near East Sahara Avenue and Abarth Street early Monday morning.

Victoria Bradges told 13 Action news that she woke up to a loud rumble.

"I was scared. I didn't understand what happened. I thought I was still in my dreams, still sleeping," Bradges says.

Police say the driver is suspected of driving drunk and was taken into custody for driving under the influence.

The crash happened around 6:22 a.m.

Bradges says the white truck first crashed into her husband’s car sending it into their home.

"It was noisy and there was a shake," Bradges says.

Then, the truck flipped over and created another hole in the property near the front door.

Bradges says her family purchased the house nearly six weeks ago.

There were no injuries.
