Over the weekend, a drunk driver crashed into a Waco, Texas home featured on the HGTV show “Fixer Upper”.
Homeowners Ken and Kelly Downs, were sleeping in their bedroom at the time of the crash. Both were not hurt but the house was greatly damaged.
Allen Wayne Miller, 31, was found inside his Hyundai Accent as it sat parked inside the Downs home. Reportedly, he attempted to escape but firefighters helped detain him before police arrived.
Authorities reported Miller was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge.
Kelly Downs stated that the renovations performed by TV hosts Chip and Joanna Grimes are likely what saved her and her husband.
The renovators relocated a brick fireplace in the front office and it was likely what stopped the car dead in its tracks.
