September 5, 2009 4:40:56 PM PDT
Police say a drunken driver sped through a stop sign and hit an earthen mound before going airborne and smashing his Jeep into the second floor of a New York home. The spectacular wreck happened just after midnight Saturday in East Moriches on Long Island.

The Jeep ripped a giant hole in the side of the house, then fell into a foyer on the first floor. It came to rest on its rear end with its headlights pointing skyward.

The only person home at the time was asleep on the couch on the first floor. He was not hurt.

The 20-year-old driver suffered minor injuries. A passenger walked away unscathed.

Suffolk County Police charged the 20-year-old with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. ---
