A man suspected of drunken driving drove his car through the front of a Waco home that was featured on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” Saturday morning, the Waco-Tribune Herald reports

The house was nicknamed the “Three Little Pigs” house and was featured on Season 3, Episode 12 of the show. The owners of the house were not injured in the crash, but the house suffered considerable damage when the Hyundai Accent drove through its front office. 

According to the Herald, the owners of the home feel their complaints about crime in the neighborhood have gone unheard. 

“This is a ‘Fixer Upper’ gone bad,” homeowner Kelly Downs told the Herald. She also reported that neighbors and local store owners have complained of taxes going up after the home was featured on the show. 

The driver, 31-year-old Allen Wayne Miller, was taken to the hospital before being taken to jail. According to authorities, Miller tried to flee the scene after the crash.
