A car crashed into a house in Eden Prairie overnight because the driver forgot to put it into park.

Police were called to the 10000 block of Mount Curve Road and arrived to find the car resting up against a house. The driver said he ran out of gas and went to the truck to get a gas can but forgot to put the car into park.

The car rolled down a steep hill and hit the house. Crews were able to pull it out of the trees and put it back onto the road. The driver wasn’t injured.

The incident is still under investigation.
