It was a week-end of clean up for several residents in the Benson area of Omaha after an SUV plowed through the wall of a house near 67th and Lake Streets early Friday morning. Chris Joneson lives in that neighborhood and says he thought there had been an explosion of some sort when the crash woke him up around 3 am.
Joneson ran outside and found his neighbor. She and her bed were forced through a wall and she was located in the back yard. The 31 year old woman was rushed to a hospital with several broken bones and internal injuries.
Joneson says once he saw to the needs of the woman he confronted the suspected driver. Neighbors held him until police arrived. Several cars parked in the neighborhood were hit prior to the SUV hitting the house. The driver apparently told police he had been at a bar prior to the accident.
