Police say 19-year-old Brendon Bubar was travelling along Route 7 in Newport when he lost control of his Chevy Blazer, careened across the road, and into a house belonging to Jeff Squires.
There were two people in the house at the time of the crash, but neither were hurt.
Neighbors say they heard the crash, but didn’t hear a screech leading up to it.
They say when they arrived on scene, they found Bubar next to his car, and the two people in the house on the back deck.
The heavily damaged vehicle was found on its side, and is believed to have flipped over multiple times.
Squires, who has spent the last three years renovating the home, says the damage has left the house uninhabitable, but says he plans to rebuild.
Police say speed contributed to the crash. Bubar is expected to face charges.
