A drunk driver nearly killed a 12-year old boy in Florida after he crashed into his Florida home.
Suzanne Stoker, a neighbor, shared photos showing a huge hole in the side the family’s Cape Coral home after the tragic crash on Friday morning. The boy’s bedroom was once filled with insulation and concrete.
Stoker shared in her Facebook post that her younger brother, aged 12, had previously slept on the wall the truck crashed into.

According to Cape Coral Police Department, King, 64, was driving under the influence of alcohol and backed out of the driveway across the street. He then reversed his direction and crashed into the house. King’s Ford F350 left an indented hole in the home’s side.
