CBS News reports that a driver has been arrested for DUI after speeding and flying into a house. The driver, from Pennsylvania, was driving his car on July 4 and speeding when it flew off the road and crashed into a brick house. The accident was caught on a security camera. The Mini Cooper crashed into the house at around 11 a.m., going through a wall and flipping before the driver climbed out.

Two residents were in the home during the crash, but neither was injured. The homeowner, Jennifer Smith, is a defense attorney and estimates the damage caused by the crash to total at least $20,000. The driver told her on the scene that “There aren’t enough apologies in the world.”

Kameron Smith, 28, was driving over 80 mph in a 55 mph zone on an interstate when he passed other cars with officers in pursuit after he ran a red light. He told officials later that he wasn’t trying to escape, but rather his foot was stuck on the accelerator.

Smith faces DUI and attempting to elude police charges. He was also driving with a suspended license and expired registration, and did not have insurance. He posted $2,500 bail and will be in court July 18 for a preliminary hearing.
