TOWN OF BELOIT - A Town of Beloit man survived a truck crashing through the roof of his "man cave" in the 2900 block of S. Park Avenue this afternoon.

Pieter E. Bruner, 37, of the 2400 block of Riverside Drive, drove a red Dodge pickup truck which crashed into the roof of the home of Joseph and Delores Nyre at 4:26 p.m. today.

Town of Beloit Police Chief Ron Northrop said a witness reported a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on Park Avenue when it left the roadway and went into water-retaining ditch which caused the vehicle to go airborne and crash into the roofline of the house.

First responders determined Bruner wasn't injured and assisted him out of the vehicle. Bruner was arrested for third offense operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and reckless driving.

When asked if Bruner was under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, police said they are awaiting crime lab results to come back in a few weeks.

Bruner was transported to the Rock County Sheriff's Department on a book and end release with court dates.

Joseph Nyre said he was watching the Badgers game in his "man cave" when the truck came crashing through the roof, only about 12 feet from him. His wife Delores Nyre, who was in the kitchen at the time, said the truck was sitting atop her Audi convertible. The Nyres and their dog, 14-year-old Princess Katie, were waiting outside their home planning to go to Delores Nyre's sister's home for the evening.

Neighbor Shannon Holmes and his wife heard the crash and went outside to help.

"You don't see this every day," Shannon Holmes said.

Once on scene, the Holmeses they heard the neighbor in his garage talking to the truck's driver until the paramedics arrived and got him out of the truck. Neighbors said the driver was up and walking around although he seemed a bit disoriented.
