SAN ANTONIO -

A van plowed into a home in the 3600 block of Crossette Drive near Babcock and Hillcrest Tuesday night. The driver then fled the scene, San Antonio police said.
Damages were estimated at $6,000, according to San Antonio police.
The homeowner was inside when the van came crashing into his sitting room and garage at about 10 p.m.
"Well, I thought it was thunder," Carlos Mata, the homeowner said. "It was big thunder. I thought (a) tree fell down."
San Antonio police believe the driver ran a stop sign before driving through the yard and into the house.
Firefighters helped Mata board up the front of his home.
"They did a good job, because it was a big hole," Mata said.
A neighbor told police the driver limped from the scene.
