Homeowners react to crazy crash that ended with 2 vehicles in their home

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A homeowner in the eastern part of the Las Vegas valley experienced a very terrifying moment Monday when two vehicles slammed into his home. According to police, a pickup truck hit the homeowner’s car, which caused a train reaction and sent that car into the home.
