A Lebanon man was arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and driving while suspended after crashing his pickup into a house on Hayden Road on Saturday night, according to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.

Haven Austin Hansen, 22, had a blood-alcohol-content almost three times the legal limit, a news release states. 

Deputies responded to a report of a non-injury crash at 10:25 p.m. on Saturday.

When they arrived, they found a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup had smashed through the front window of the house and came to rest in the living room. Only the rear portion of the pickup was sticking out of the residence, according to a news release.

Just prior to the crash, the residents had gone to bed and were no longer in the front portion of the house.

The Lebanon Fire District assisted the family in boarding up the front portion of the house.

Investigation into the crash is continuing.
