A Rohnert Park man on Sunday drove his car through the front of a house where residents were inside with a newborn baby, police said.

Percy Reed, 61, told officers he was using methamphetamines before he got behind the wheel of his Chevy Tahoe, the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety said.

He crashed into the living room of the Heath Circle home around 6 p.m. at what witnesses described as a high rate of speed, police said. They said Reed failed to turn at a bend in the roadway.

Reed got stuck in the SUV and had to be removed through the rear hatch by police, firefighters and paramedics. He then was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital to be evaluated for any injuries.

The residents escaped injuries. They weren’t in the front rooms at the time of the crash.

However, they were temporarily displaced after their home was deemed uninhabitable by city inspectors. Officers helped the family remove some of their belongings and took them to a temporary location until they can move back, police said.

Reed was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and possession of methamphetamines. He was cited and released to hospital staff, police said.
