Being a homeowner can be tough, knowing that you are responsible for the property and may have to dip into the emergency fund if your washer and dryer breaks down, you find a water leak, or you have a Toyota Corolla crash into the second level of your house.

You may not worry about that last one happening as much as the first two that I mentioned, but I’m sure this Pennsylvania homeowner wasn’t losing sleep over the possibility that a car could ramp into their house either.

After investigating the incident which left the Toyota Corolla lodged into the second floor of the house, authorities are now planning to press charges against the driver who “parked” their vehicle in the upstairs of the Pennsylvania home.

20-year-old Evan Miller was the person who left the car dangling up in the air, and while he is recovering from injuries in the hospital, he’ll also be served with a number of charges. What charges can you face if you intentionally ramp your car into someone’s house you might be asking? Well, take a look at what Miller faces below:

-Felony aggravated assault

-Felony criminal mischief (with damage to property)

-Reckless endangerment


-Reckless and careless driving

-Failing to drive at a safe speed

-Disregarding traffic lane

Notice that none of those said “using your vehicle as a personal missile and launching it into someone’s home,” because the law probably thought that no one would be dumb enough to try that.

According to the report, Miller sped up along the road that runs by the home and then used a ditch to ramp the vehicle up into the air and into the home. No one besides the 20-year-old driver ended up being injured in the crash.

The investigation into the incident led Pennsylvania State Police to conclude that the act was not accidental, but rather intentional, even though they currently don’t know a motive or if Miller knew the people who owned the house.

It apparently took authorities over two hours to remove the vehicle from the second floor of the home. Emergency crews then stayed to help stabilize the building to ensure it wouldn’t fall down (now that there is a gaping hole in it), and additionally provided a tarp to the homeowners so that they could temporarily cover the area left open to the elements.

The news piece below provides more information on the story, as well as pictures and videos of the car in the house and it being removed. Take a look, and make sure to keep an eye out for flying Toyotas while you are at it:
