MESA, Ariz. -- Crews from the Mesa Fire Department were called out to a home after an SUV crashed into it.

It happened Tuesday evening near Main Street and Stapley Drive.

Capt. Forrest Smith with the Mesa Fire Dept said it appears the driver swerved from the street into the front yard of the home and then into the driveway.

"What PD was describing is that the gentleman had stated that his brakes had gone out and he had swerved out of the street and into the home," said Capt. Smith.

Mesa fires crews were shoring up the damaged area of the home on Tuesday evening. Mesa building officials will determine whether the home is safe for the residents.

The driver was not injured and the home was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

Some people were supposed to move into the home on Wednesday.
