    A Long Island home is in ruins after a driver took a speed bump so fast his Jeep jumped high in the air and smashed through a wall on the second floor.

         The spectacular wreck happened just after midnight Saturday in East Moriches.
        
    Homeowner John Sarli was asleep on a sofa when the crash awakened him. The vehicle ripped a giant hole in the side of the house and fell into a foyer on the first floor, landing with its
    headlights pointing skyward.
        
    Sarli was alone in the home and wasn't hurt. The 20-year-old driver suffered minor injuries, while a passenger walked away unscathed.
        
    Suffolk County police arrested the driver on charges including driving while intoxicated and reckless endangerment.
