A Hit & Run...into a house

yesterday March 21, 2012 around 6pm My husband Cain was in the lower half of our house playing video games. And as I had just walked up stairs to fold laundry i heard the noises of screeching tires start up. I didn't think much of it when i heard the noises because we are always seeing drivers either swerve a little into our front yard or just basically not obeying the speed limit. Before i could open the blinds to watch this car,it hit my house. I heard a huge crash;and then i could hear my husband screaming "Oh My God,I almost died!" I ran as fast as i could to my eldest son,4 whom was watching tv upstairs and my youngest,5months whom was sleeping in his room upstairs as well. I then ran downstairs where i met with my husband as he was getting off the couch and huge chunks of glass starting to fall off of him. I instantly saw the vehicle through what was left of our window and called 911. As I was making the call to 911 the driver of the vehicle peeled out and some how managed to take off up the street until it came to a stop landeding on its side. A nearby jogger and neighbor approached the driver and helped him out of the vehicle,where he then made a run for it. Within 5 minutes he was caught and put in cuffs. My husband walked away with just a small scratch on his hand. Our house on the other hand,will need a little work before its back to new...
