A north Boise family had a rude awakening today when a pickup plowed into their home on North 23rd Street.

Police said the driver of the vehicle had sped through an intersection before jumping the curb and driving his pickup right into the living room of the house just before 2 a.m. Two people were sleeping upstairs and even the family dog escaped injury as the pet was also on the second floor. Boise fire officials rescued the family a short time after the crash.

Nicki Sanders, 25, was booked into the Ada County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of DUI. His arraignment is set for Thursday, Nov. 13.
