Man charged after crashing into house featured on ‘Fixer Upper’ show

WACO, TX (KWKT)  – A Waco man is charged with a DWI after police say he crashed into a North Waco house that was featured on the television show “Fixer Upper.”

Police say Allen Miller, 31, was driving while intoxicated Saturday around 1:20 a.m.

“I was laying in my bed about to go to sleep and then, the next thing I hear, I hear what sounded like an explosion,” said Michael Dickerson, neighbor.

Police say Miller lost control of his vehicle, went airborne and crashed into the front of a home on Alexander Avenue.

“The car was completely submerged into the house. The ground was destroyed from the car flying into the house,” said Dickerson.


Neighbors say this has happened before to the same house multiple times.

Neighbors and business employees say it’s because many times people speed through the 19th St. and Alexander Ave. intersection and don’t stop.

They say the homeowners, Ken and Kelly Downs, plan to take up this issue with the city, and use surveillance video from their home and the business across the street to support their argument.

The homeowners were not available for comment Sunday. The house was featured in season 3 of “Fixer Upper.”
