MOUNT WASHINGTON, OH (FOX19) -

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of your house caving in. Then, screeching tires as the person responsible drives away.

It happened to one family in Mt. Washington early Sunday morning in the 1900 block of Sutton Avenue.

"We wake up because our house started to shake and we thought maybe an earthquake had started,” said Gergana Enevska.

Enevska says she and her daughter came downstairs just after 1 a.m. this morning to find a gaping hole in their dining room wall and tire tracks on their lawn but what they did not find was the driver who did it.

"We can feel the air and we didn't see the car. Immediately I called 911 and say that the accident happened. We don't know what to do or what to think,” Enevska said.

The neighbor across the street saw everything including the white Toyota pickup truck pulling out and speeding away down Wayside Avenue. The neighbor says the truck looked heavily damaged with the front bumper falling off as the driver left the scene. 

Police recovered several pieces of the truck left after the collision but are still looking for the driver.

Now with temperatures dipping into the single digits, the family is forced to tough it out with only a piece of plastic to protect them from the elements until an inspector can survey the damage later this week.

While they are thankful no one was hurt, Enevska says she just wants the driver responsible to come forward to pay for what they've done.

"Next time he can kill a person. Who knows what can happen if nobody knows who he is? I don't know. I cannot understand how this can happen nowadays especially here in America. This is so so weird,” said Enevska.

To make matters worse, Enevska tells us her family just moved here within the last two years from Bulgaria and have not yet purchased home insurance. They aren't sure how they will be able to afford the repairs.

If you have any information about this white Toyota truck or this accident, you are encouraged to contact Cincinnati Police District 2 at 513-979-4400.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
