The vehicle went through several rooms of the home, then through a fence before it came to a stop at a neighbor's yard.

The truck crashed inches away from the bed of a 13-year-old boy.

"It was just very surreal," one of the residents said.

There were no injuries reported.

The driver apologized then fled the scene but was later arrested nearby.

Charges against him are pending and an investigation remains ongoing.
