MUSKEGON, Mich. -- A truck drove through a front lawn and into a home Monday afternoon.

Michigan State Police are currently on scene at a residence near the intersection of Hall Road and Brooks Road South where an SUV drove up the front lawn and into the side of the house.

“Front wheels on the passenger side were actually sitting on the wall of the basement," Patrick Pearce, homeowner. "And part of the car was in the house actually.”

The driver told police that while driving on Brooks Road another vehicle swerved in front of him, sending him into the house as he tried to avoid a collision.

Pearce actually sleeps where the car crashed. His bed is against the wall it hit.

“I’m glad I wasn’t in bed," says Pearce. "Yeah that’s my bedroom where the car went in. My bed hits the wall right there and that would have been my head.”

No one inside the home was hurt. Occupants in the two vehicles on suffered minor injuries.

No word from police on what led up to the original accident. As for Pearce’s home, early damage estimates are around $10,000.
