“I think anyone’s impression when they see the photos of the scene after the vehicle had been removed was just awe and gratefulness that nobody was fatally injured. This could have been an absolutely unnecessary tragedy,” said Sgt. Ray Santiago.

The house sustained extensive damage.

Shaw is facing several charges, including OVI.
