    @DeathRow: It's not hard to move a vehicle, even without the keys. If the transmission is not in gear and the parking brake is not set, it is actually really easy.

    A little hard for a vehicle to hit a house unless the person doing it has the keys. Either he did it when he came home, or he left the keys in the unlocked vehicle. And if he left the keys, anyone stealing it would have been smart enough not to drive it into the house. Maybe we will hear the whole story later.
