LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police are investigating a crash in east Las Vegas where two vehicles collided with a house Monday morning.

The driver of the silver pick-up truck apparently struck a parked car before slamming into the house, according to witnesses at the scene.

The homeowners say they bought the home six weeks ago.

“I heard a lot of noise, like something happened. Our entire house shook,” said Victoria Bridges.

Victoria's husband has an office near where the truck hit the house. 

“If my husband was sitting and working in his office like he usually does, it could have killed him,” said Bridges.

Victoria and her husband are trying to recover and begin the clean up process. The couple is still in shock that this happened to their recently purchased home.

"I’m still in shock. I just don’t understand how this happened, how he can drive so fast,” said Bridges.

Police arrested the driver of the silver-pickup truck, and suspect drugs and alcohol as contributing factors.

The suspected DUI driver was identified in police booking logs as 34-year-old Jose DeJesus Flores. According to jail records, he was booked into the Clark County Detention Center for a third DUI offense.

He was scheduled for a status check on July 23 at 7:30 a.m.

Victoria and her husband are unsure how much damage was caused. A contractor recommended that the city survey the home as soon as possible.

The couple will work with their insurance company and find temporary housing until repairs can be made.
