Virginia Beach, Va. - An overnight crash left one car smashed into the front of a Virginia Beach home, and another embedded in a tree.

Police say a man was driving at least 65 mph on in the 2600 block of Bernadotte Street when he lost control and hit a parked car. The impact sent the parked car crashing into a home and the man's car struck a tree in the front yard.

The accident happened around 2:30am. The driver, Charles K. Brewton III, was charged with Reckless Driving after being examined at a hospital.

The owners of the home tell NewsChannel 3's Jackie Morlock that the parked car belonged to their 18-year-old son, who planned on using it to pick up his girlfriend for their prom this week.

Two businesses saw the story on NewsChannel 3 and contacted us wanting to take action to give him a ride.

They gave him a black Cadillac, a chauffeur and dinner!

    Aww, that’s cool! Not the crash, the people who stepped up afterward to make sure the kid’s prom wasn’t ruined. Nice to read about someone doing a good thing, for a change!

    Glad the family is ok. BUMMER though. That was my moms old Intrepid. She kept that car in Awesome shape since it was new. It was sad too see because I personally braved the streets of new york in that car, and we went on a lot of family trips accident and incident free, and of all things some irresponsible jerk comes and smashes into it… Just goes to show…. :( I hope the Insurance Company does the kid right.

    I knew when I saw it aired the boy was going to get a new car, it was obvious that’s what they were shooting for.I just wonder though if the insurance would have paid out.From looking at their house they didn’t look needy.Good publicity for the car dealership.
