Portland police said a driver carrying crack cocaine blew through a stop sign, crashed into another car and then slammed into a northeast Portland house.
Officers said he was eventually caught hiding in a tree.
It happened around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Northeast 65th and Fremont Street.
Police said a Jeep Cherokee went through a stop sign and crashed into a Volvo. The Volvo spun out, while the Jeep ended up across Fremont, lodged up against a house.
The home's porch and roof support suffered substantial damage. Nobody was hurt.
"I was just making some eggs in the kitchen and it felt like an earthquake," said Kjirstin Wodtli, whose house was hit by the car.
Officers said the driver ran away from the scene.
"He left the car running and everything," Wodtli said. "He left, stumbling out with a cigar and went running away. I was like, 'Classy. Thank you.'"
Police said they found the suspect, 34-year-old Aaron Keys, hiding in a holly tree about three blocks away.
Keys was found to be in possession of crack cocaine, officers said. He's facing the following charges: delivery of cocaine, possession of cocaine, reckless driving, failure to perform the duties of a driver and criminal mischief.
The Jeep was not removed from the home until a construction crew could come out and make sure it was safe.
