PHOENIX - A car smashed through a north Phoenix home early Saturday morning, causing massive damage and knocking out power to several neighbors near Cave Creek and Loop 101.
The car went through the wall of the garage at such a high speed that it came to rest almost vertically.
"I didn't hear hardly a thing," said Mike Rehberg, who was sleeping inside the home with his wife when it happened.
According to police, officers were able to make contact with the owner of the car who said he was not inside the car at the time of the accident. A second person at the home of the owner of the car also denied being in the car.
Police say both men showed evidence of alcohol consumption and they were both cited for underage drinking.
"They had to be going pretty fast," said Rehberg. "You don't see any skid marks."
Electricity was shut off to the home and several others for a couple hours following the crash.
Fortunately, no gas lines were compromised in the home and Rehberg and his family will be able to stay in the home despite the hole in the garage.
"It is what it is," said Rehberg. "We'll still be able to stay here, we'll just board it up. We just moved here from Chicago in November so we're still just excited to be in Arizona."
There were no witnesses at the scene and no arrests have been made at this time.
