Flying SUV Slams Into Home's Second Story

A Long Island home is in ruins after a driver took a speed bump so fast his Jeep jumped high in the air and smashed through a wall on the second floor.

     The spectacular wreck happened just after midnight Saturday in East Moriches.
    
Homeowner John Sarli was asleep on a sofa when the crash awakened him. The vehicle ripped a giant hole in the side of the house and fell into a foyer on the first floor, landing with its
headlights pointing skyward.
    
Sarli was alone in the home and wasn't hurt. The 20-year-old driver suffered minor injuries, while a passenger walked away unscathed.
    
Suffolk County police arrested the driver on charges including driving while intoxicated and reckless endangerment.
