Driver plows into South Vancouver home, police believe alcohol a factor
Couple and cats living in the home were uninjured, officials said
A 31-year-old Alberta man was arrested after police say he crashed his pickup truck into a house in south Vancouver late Tuesday night.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the incident.
The man was driving down Champlain Crescent, near Matheson Crescent, around 11:30 p.m. when he apparently lost control and ended up crashing through a fence and into a two-storey house.
Battalion Chief Mike Sereda, with Vancouver Fire Rescue, was at the scene and said the house has some structural damage, but no one inside was hurt.
"The corner of the house has been hit by the vehicle and we have it temporarily shored," said Sereda.
"The people inside the house are fine, it was two people and a couple of cats and they're all fine."
The driver was arrested on scene.
Vancouver police say they are continuing to investigate and will recommend charges of impaired driving.
