ODESSA- A couple walked away with minor injuries after a pick-up truck came crashing through their bedroom Tuesday night. According to police, it happened around 11:30 p.m. off the 2700 block of N. Dixie Blvd.
Police said the man was driving recklessly before he went slamming into the home.
"It was really fast, happened real quick, never expected anything to happen like this but it does," neighbor, Oscar Baeza, said.
Police say 28-year-old Brandon Wolfe was driving northbound on North Dixie Boulevard speeding and ran a red light at the University intersection. The truck went on to the sidewalk, missed another truck by inches, slammed through a brick wall and ended up in the couples bedroom upside down.
"I ran over and helped them and pulled them out making sure everyone was fine. Just like anybody else would," Baeza said.
"We heard the noise but we didn't know what had happened. So we come out of the house, we see all these people here and I see the truck upside down on the inside of their home," neighbor, Carmen Subia, said.
The upside down truck was pulled out with a tow truck while paramedics rushed the couple and the driver to the hospital. What's left is a bedroom destroyed, debris all over the front yard and the Mustang smashed down along with skid marks on the curb and street.
Reckless driving is what concerns neighbors.
"It upsets me because of the fact that they use this street as a drag street. They just race up and down," Subia said.
"People don't drive safely no more. They just have no concern for safety. I see people taking red lights and speeding. They really don't think about other peoples safety around here," Baeza said.
Three kids were inside the home at the time of the impact but weren't hurt. Police say the driver is in serious condition and remains at Medical Center Hospital.
No word if charges will be filed.
