A man suspected of drunk driving crashed his car into a Waco, Texas, home featured on Fixer Upper early Saturday morning, according to a local report. The homeowners, Ken and Kelly Downs, were not injured when the vehicle crashed into the front room office, according to the Waco Tribute-Herald. The house, nicknamed the “Three Little Pigs House” when it appeared on season 3 of the HGTV hit was renovated by the husband-wife duo Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gaines’ renovations included relocating a brick fireplace in the office, which may have been what stopped the car, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald. The homeowners said they were sleeping in the next room the car would have hit.
The accident added to the Downs’ frustration with the neighborhood. “It’s like the Wild West here. There’s been a lot of commotion coming from the bars and the store across the street,” Kelly said. “It’s been a problem from the beginning. We’ve lived here a year and a half and we feel deceived by the city of Waco and Magnolia Realty.” Here’s a look at the damage:
