The crash happened late Friday night. Investigators say Wilson crashed into a truck parked in the driveway of the home. The force of the crash sent the truck into the home, through the garage door. The family estimates the damage is more than tens of thousands of dollars.

The owners of the home caught Wilson’s truck on surveillance, giving the license plate number to investigators.

Missouri Highway Patrol troopers also arrested Wilson’s girlfriend for hindering prosecution. Investigators say she shared images of the damaged truck with a friend, then asking her to delete them.
