Exclusive: Family Wants Charges After Car Slams Into Home On S. 60th Street

A man was arrested and a family shaken after a car slammed into a home in West Allis on Monday morning.

It happened on South 60th Street near Mineral St -- just yards away from the deadly Opening Day accident -- just before 6:30 a.m. A 30-year-old man was taken into custody for driving while under the influence. 

It appears the driver swerved off the road and took down two street signs before crashing into the front of the home. The accident left a hole in the front of the house and appeared to damage the foundation. No one was hurt. 

"This is a very high traffic area and the cars do seem to just be zooming down," said resident Ramone Roche Maldonado, who spoke exclusively with CBS 58. 

"There are street lights, but a lot of the time the cars just go really fast. We have 3 kids hat live here, and the neighbors have another 3-5 kids, not sure how many. But we do prefer the kids play out back because of the high traffic."

Maldonado said he wants more enforcement of the speed limit. 

CBS 58 reached out to the West Allis mayor to see if there are any planned steps to make the stretch of road any safer.
