Police in San Jose were looking for the driver of a vehicle that slammed into a home in the city's Willow Glen neighborhood then fled the scene on foot early Friday morning, according to the police department.

At about 12:50 a.m., officers responded to the 1400 block of Willow Street, near Westwood Street, where a car crashed into a house, causing a power outage at several surrounding homes, police said.

Witnesses told officers they heard a loud bang, and when they went outside, they saw the vehicle on the front lawn of the home with no one inside.

Video from the scene shows significant damage to the home and the vehicle.

The family who lives in this house was home but not hurt. A woman resident said she is devastated by what happened given that they remodeled the home about a year and half ago.

San Jose police said they are investigating the incident as a hit and run.

No further details were immediately available.
