RIVERSIDE, Calif. - A man sleeping in his bedroom was pinned against a wall when a car smashed through the house in Southern California.

The man suffered only minor injuries after the vehicle barreled over a power pole, through two yards and into the home in Riverside.

The car almost completely entered the structure, rendering it uninhabitable. A fire official says the resident “got very lucky.”

Police arrested the driver of the car, a 22-year-old man, on suspicion of felony DUI. Damage to the house was estimated at $200,000. Four adults were displaced and went to stay with with relatives.
