A man driving an SUV at a very high speed southbound on Blakely Road turned right onto Doanna too quickly and ran into a home at full speed.

With the car mostly inside the residence, the wheels continued to spin as the tires shredded until the car made a loud bang and the engine stopped.

A neighbor tried to come over and offer assistance to the drive and was almost hit my the driver as he flailed around in the car.

Police think the erratic driving and reaction to the neighbor was a result of medical issues.

Detectives who were in the area for an unrelated mannor drew their weapons on the driver until it was clear the driver was not being combative.

Two male residents were upstairs in the duplex when it was hit by the SUV and due to damage to the stairs, had to be rescued through a 2nd story window by the Bend Fire Department.

No arrests were made and at the driver was the only person injured.
