DUI Driver Crashes Through House at 100mph

Drunk Driver Crashes Into House at 100 mph

James Kelly Anderson, 28, lost control of his SUV and ripped through a house before coming to a stop in the backyard. Officials believe his SUV must have been traveling at least 100 mph, considering his SUV drove through five rooms before finally stopping after it ripped through to the other side of the house. It is believed that Anderson was under the influence (DUI) at the time of the wreck. The owner of the home, Greg Buckland, 37, was in one of the bedrooms and was injured but has survived.

Anderson fled the scene after the crash but was caught minutes later. He has been charged with suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), hit-and-run, reckless driving, and criminal mischief. The owner of the house, Buckland, believes that the house shifted inches off of the foundation due to the impact of the SUV. Nearly all of the furniture in the house has been destroyed, including three TVs and a fish tank.

Buckland tried to prevent Anderson from leaving after the crash. Buckland asked Anderson after the crash, “What in the world were you doing?” to which Anderson replied, “Obviously, I just drove through your house.” Buckland said Anderson got in his face before running off.
