No one was injured when a pickup drove through a fence, a hedge and into the back of a home Friday morning.

Police said the crash occurred in the 3200 block of South Braden at about 3:30 a.m.

Officers said while the residents of the home were shaken up, they weren't hurt when the Ford F150 struck the wall of the bathroom.

They say the impact caused significant damage to the wall.

Police said the driver, Tyrone Jahmar Ivey, drove through a 200-yard long parking lot before crashing through the fence and into the home. The 30-year-old man smelled of alcohol, and slurred speech and bloodshot eyes, according to an arrest report.

Ivey was booked on a complaint of driving under the influence, first offense. Officers said he was not injured in the crash.
