"It pushed the bedroom contents up against the back wall," said Battalion Chief Chuck Seely of the Downey Fire Department.
A man and his young daughter were asleep in the house at the time. They were taken to a local hospital for minor injuries and are expected to be OK. The mother of the home was at the hospital at the time of the accident because she had just given birth on Thursday.
Witnesses said the driver tried to run away after the crash, but neighbors stopped him. He was taken into police custody and may face charges. He is suspect of driving under the influence.
The house has since been boarded up.
