SHERMAN, TX-- David Pfeifer's two son's were asleep in their beds when they woke up to a loud crashing sound.

"We received a call from a home on Bordeaux street saying that a vehicle had driven into the house," said, Sgt. Bruce Dawsey, Sherman Police Department.

A maroon Oldsmobile had driven through a parking lot, across Gallagher Street and straight into the Pfeifer's home, and then left the scene.

"Well I'm angry because it's one thing that it happens and it was an accident, but how do you put a 10 foot hole in someone's house and take off down the road without stopping? I mean, that's annoying," said, David Pfeifer.

Dawsey said police aren't sure exactly what happened before the car hit the house, but they do know it'll take thousands of dollars to repair.

"Significant damage to the house and drove completely through one exterior wall hit a pool table and punched the pool table through the opposite wall."

Two hours after leaving the scene, the 17-year-old driver showed back up at the house. Police said he'd driven back home to Whitesboro and when his mother saw her car with bricks on the hood, she drove him right back to the crash site.

The teenager does not have a license and police said he was driving under the influence of alcohol and other substances when he crashed.

He was arrested on a warrant for a separate crime. No charges have been filed yet for the hit and run accident.

For now, Pfeifer said even though the house was recently remodeled, he's just glad his boys aren't hurt.

"That's all that matter's. I can buy a new pool table and stuff like that."
