An SUV crashed into the living room of a Lexington home early Friday morning, and the three people inside the vehicle took off running.
The SUV plowed through the house on Bent Bough Place around 3 a.m. Billy Goens was asleep inside.
"It's pretty scary. I was lying in bed, and the vehicle came right through the corner of the bedroom and barely missed the bed, and as you can see, I have no living room or half of a house left"
Goens said he heard the driver trying to back the SUV out and then heard the two passengers trying to flee the scene. All three people ran, but police managed to catch up with all of them nearby.
Police charged the driver with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of wanton endangerment. The passengers both face alcohol intoxication charges.
