BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - A Bremerton man was seriously hurt when a car crashed into his house and struck him as he was sleeping in the bedroom.

Bremerton Police say officers found the 31-year-old with injuries to his face and abdomen when they arrived at the home just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say the 69-year-old Bremerton driver reportedly told them that he had taken prescription medication and smoked marijuana Tuesday evening. Police believe he ran a stop sign, went down an embankment and hit the house.

The Kitsap Sun says the driver was booked into Kitsap County Jail on investigation of vehicular assault.

The resident was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
