Drunk Driver Slams Into Wichita Falls Home After New Year's Fun

Wichita Falls, TX - A man and his fiance, who is five months pregnant, were jolted out of bed early New Year's Day when a drunk driver crashed a vehicle into their home.

The incident happened just before 4:00a.m. in the 2000 block of Maurine Street in Wichita Falls.

Police said the driver of a Red 2000 Ford Ranger truck was on their cell phone when heading westbound on Maurine Street.  The driver ended up striking a gas line, then later hitting the home and stalled after running into a fence.

Authorities said there were no injuries. However, the driver of the vehicle was taken into police custody and transported to the Wichita County Jail where they will be facing charges of Driving While Intoxicated.
