CAMAS, Wash. (AP) - When a southwest Washington homeowner heard what she thought was a crash in the street, she didn’t dream it was actually in her house.

Then Ann Degenshein says she opened her window and saw a pickup truck sticking out of her front entrance.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/C9jLaj ) that Camas police say the stolen Nissan pickup wound up crashing into the house Monday after the Washington State Patrol got reports of a similar vehicle driving recklessly on nearly State Highway 14. The license plate came back to a truck reported stolen Sunday night.

Police say the truck doors were blocked by the house so the driver busted out the rear window and ran off.

Officers say they found the man about a mile away, hiding underneath a wheelbarrow in the bed of another pickup. He was arrested for investigation of stolen vehicle possession, hit and run and reckless driving.
