A homeowner in Camas, Washington, was standing just feet from her front door when an out-of-control truck slammed into her home on Monday morning.

“I look out the window and around the corner and a truck was sitting in my porch,” Ann Degenshein told local TV station KATU. “That giant wood, custom door … fell straight down, and locked me in the office.”

The driver of the truck, which was stolen, was trapped in the vehicle and had to kick out the back window to escape, the station reported.

He didn’t get too far. Police found him a few blocks away and arrested him, according to KATU.

“He ended up hiding in the back of the gardener’s truck,’ Degenshein said. “I guess he covered himself with leaves.”
