David Vander Hoek, 32, and Mary Schellert, 30, got a surprise early Sunday morning when a green Dodge Durango crashed into their southeast Bend home.
Police received a report at approximately 1:18 a.m. Sunday that the sport utility vehicle had hit the home on southeast Sixth Street near Roosevelt Avenue, according to a news release from the Bend Police Department.
According to police, 21-year-old Cesar Jahir Carmona Vences, of Bend, was driving north on Sixth Street when he turned left and drove off the road for an unknown reason. Carmona Vences’ Durango hit two large lava rocks in the home’s front yard before it ran into a corner of the house, police said.
Police believe Carmona Vences’ consumption of alcohol contributed to the crash. No one was injured, but the home and the Durango were damaged. Carmona Vences was arrested on suspicion of DUII, reckless driving and two counts of reckless endangering. He was lodged at the Deschutes County jail, Lt. Paul Kansky said.
