Police: Drunk driver crashed into Mount Holly home

Vermont State Police in Rutland responded to a crash Wednesday night where a pickup truck drove through the living room of a Mount Holly home.
Homeowner Andy Haskell was sitting in the next room over when he says he heard the vehicle coming from down the road. Police say Garrett Lever, 32, of Rutland Town, was driving under the influence when he swerved out of the lane of traffic and into Haskell's yard.
Haskell says the intersection where his house sits in Mount Holly is incredibly dangerous and prone to crashes when people aren't obeying speed limits.
"Something major finally happened, luckily nobody got killed, because the speed the guy was traveling, somebody, if they were in that room, would've been killed," said Haskell.
The driver reportedly attempted to back the vehicle out of the house to drive away, and two passengers in the truck fled the scene. Haskell plans to give the police items of evidence he has found since the crash in his yard, including beer bottles and a cash withdrawal receipt.
