Car crashes into west Lawton home

LAWTON-- Police say a car going at least 70 miles-per-hour crashed into a home and garage early Saturday morning. It happened near 67th and Compass. Officers arrested 18-year-old Jesse Gonzales at the scene for drunk driving. Police say he was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. As for the family who lives there, they're okay, but now homeless.

Jason Bell never thought something like this would happen to him or his family. He says he and his wife were up feeding their newborn daughter at the time of the crash. By Saturday afternoon he was picking up the pieces. In fact, bricks from his home flew two house down. "The car had hit the curb, jumped and went airborne 65 feet and landed right here," pointing to the gaping hole in his garage. Both of their cars were damaged and pinned in behind the garage door.

The Bells say they are going to have to find an apartment, until they can move into a house they just bought. Fire officials say it's not safe for them to stay at their damaged home because some support beams were knocked out.
