UPDATE:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)- After hitting a parked SUV, an accused drunk driver still had enough momentum to slam into a home with his van.

It happened shortly before 2 A.M. Friday, and police say that the driver took off running after the crash. Thanks to the Police K-9 Unit, he was found quickly and arrested.

Officials say no one was inside the home at the time, and the driver is now being charged with drunk driving.
