HERMISTON, Ore.  - A family living near Hermiston managed to avoid getting hurt this week when a truck crashed into their home. 

Umatilla County Sheriff Deputies say a driver veered off Diagonal Road on Tuesday afternoon, plowing through two fences and crashing into the family's car, pushing it through the bathroom wall. 

The homeowner says he initially thought it was thunder, but then realized the house was shaking too much for that.

Deputies say they gave the driver a sobriety test and put him in handcuffs. He only suffered minor bruising.
