The crash happened a little after 9:30 a.m. in Esparto.

California Highway Patrol says their officers responded and quickly found that vehicle had nearly gone all the way through the house.

From photos at the scene, it appears the house suffered severe damage.

A family was home at the time, officers say, but no one was hurt.

More from CBS Sacramento:

The driver – whose name has not been released at this point – was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.

Witnesses still cannot believe what they saw and heard.

“It was a loud bang and my windows shook and everything shook inside my room so I was like, was that an earthquake or what was that?” Araceli Figueroa said.

Most of the damage was confined to the garage area that had been turned into a living room.

Officials say the driver was injured in the crash.
