Buffalo, NY -- Some people were rattled out of their beds early Tuesday morning when a car slammed into their duplex. It happened on Tonawanda Street near Ontario Street in Buffalo. Police tell Eyewitness News, the car was stolen and the driver took off on foot.

One person who lives there told us, "I was in bed sleeping. I just got to bed, and all of a sudden, I hear a loud engine revving. It woke me out of a sound sleep and I felt a bump in the house. When I came outside, I saw we have a car in our building."

Police are trying to find the driver. There is only minor damage to the house.
