Percy Reed, 61, crashed his Chevy Tahoe into the front of a home on Heath Circle in Rohnert Park, Calif. July 14, 2019. The home's occupants, including a baby, were unharmed but were displaced due to the damage.

A 61-year-old man was allegedly high on methamphetamine when he crashed an SUV into an occupied home with a newborn baby inside Sunday evening in Rohnert Park, according to public safety officials.

Just after 6 p.m., emergency crews responded to a home in the 4500 block of Heath Circle, where Percy Reed was allegedly trying to back a Chevy Tahoe out of a single-family residence he’d crashed into, police said. The vehicle was stuck inside the house, however.

Reed was removed from the vehicle through the rear hatch and taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Police said the victims were home at the time of the crash, but none of them were in the affected rooms and they were not injured. They were, unfortunately, displaced after a building inspector determined that the home was uninhabitable as a result of the damage.

Investigators said Reed admitted to using meth before driving, and drugs were found inside his vehicle after the tow truck driver removed it from the structure.
