SAN ANTONIO – The driver of a pickup truck is in police custody after crashing into a Northeast Side home early Monday morning, San Antonio police said.

The crash occurred just after 4:30 a.m. at a home in the 5100 block of Galahad Drive.

According to police, a man lost control of the pickup and crashed into the house. 

"I am in disbelief. I don't even know how to feel. I want to cry," said Virginia Quesada, who lives in the home.

Quesada said the truck crashed through her 13-year-old grandson's bedroom.

"My grandson was underneath the truck, and I just can't believe that he just tried to back up like nothing happened. I can't believe how these people can do this," Quesada said.

To Quesada's relief, her grandson and other grandchildren sustained minor injuries.  

As for the driver, the unnamed man was taken into custody and is being processed for DWI, police said. 

Despite the close call, Quesada is counting her blessings.
