Impaired Driver Hits House

It was a rude awakening for some St. Thomas residents, when police say a drunk driver plowed into their home.

Around 2:35am on May 4, police say a 57-year-old man who had been drinking at a nearby bar, failed to handle a turn on a residential street as he drove his white pickup.

He hit a tree and then the house.

Police were called and the man was arrested for impaired driving.

Police say a breathalyzer test given to the man registered twice the legal limit.

Damage to the house was minor and no one was hurt.
