A suspected drunk driver crashed into a home last night and then tried to run away. It happened on Tree House and Pine Dust in north Harris County. Deputies say the driver of a car lost control of the vehicle, hopped the curb and slammed into the front of the house.

The crash startled a woman inside the home. She says the driver told her to call 911 and then got out and ran away.

"He actually told me to call 911 and then when we came out here and everybody was around, he climbed out the back and just took off," said homeowner Susan Austin.

Deputies found the suspected driver near the accident scene. He was identified as Kevin White. He's facing charges of leaving an accident scene and DWI.
