JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson woman was jarred from sleep Monday afternoon when an SUV came crashing through her wall. 

It happened in the 3600 block of Hollywood Avenue near Hawkins Field in northwest Jackson. 

A Mitsubishi Montero came to rest with its front tires through the brick facade. 

The driver, 61 year old Earnest Morris was charged with DUI. He did not appear to be injured. 

A woman who was sleeping inside the house says she's thankful no one inside was hurt. 

"I just know I was laying in the bed asleep and I heard a big booming crash and I'm falling out the bed, looking up, seeing that truck coming on through the house further and further, and I just had to get out the way," said Katrina Mayfield. 

 Authorities say Morris lived a few doors down from the home he crashed into.
