FRESNO, California (KSEE) – A suspected drunk driver crashed into a Fresno home Wednesday, throwing the homeowner from his couch, according to Fresno Fire.
Crews say they were called to the home near McKinley and Channing avenues shortly before 9 p.m. following a report of a two-vehicle crash. Investigators established that a pickup truck hit a white sedan, causing it to veer off towards the house.
“He was sitting on his couch, the couch got hit by the truck, and pushed him out of the way,” said Fresno Fire Captain Pete Martinez. “He had some minor injuries.”
The man inside the home was not taken to the hospital, but a woman in the white sedan was transported to Community Regional Medical Center for minor injuries.
Police say the driver of the pickup truck was detained on suspicion of drunk driving.
