A driver faces DWI charges after he slammed his car into a home on the Northeast Side on Friday morning.

The suspect claimed he was driving home near Thousand Oaks and Scarsdale when he drove up on a curb and hit the home on Clear Lake Drive at about 3:30 a.m.

The car knocked down a front wall and landed partially in the kitchen of the house. The woman inside was not hurt, but she was checked out by paramedics at the scene.

Investigators believe the driver was drinking in the moments leading up to the crash. He was taken into custody and faces DWI charges.
