The driver, now identified as 20-year-old Ricardo Munoz, was out of the vehicle before crews arrived.

According to police, this crash hurt Munoz's 17-year-old wife and 2-year-old daughter in the car. 

Police believe Munoz and his wife got into an argument at an area grocery store. The pair continued fighting in the car when Munoz intentionally drove the vehicle in the house. 

The 20-year-old man was later arrested for the crash after being released from the hospital. He was booked on attempted murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, child abuse and endangerment charges. 

The wife and daughter were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. 

The owners of the home aren't sure if it can be fixed. The home is boarded up and fenced off now while the insurance company assesses the damage.
