An out of control dump truck crashed into a home in the Arden Arcade area on Thanksgiving Day.

The driver barrelled down Eastern Avenue, across busy Fair Oaks Boulevard onto Lake Oak Court, and then smashed into trees, slammed into two parked cars and over a grass mound before coming to a stop in the doorway of a home at the end of the cul-de-sac.

Neighbor Gil DeVega told News10, what the driver told him after the crash.

"All he said was, 'I need to have a cigarette,' and I told him, 'No do not light anything because we might explode here,'" DeVega said. 

The driver was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of driving under the influence.
