HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville Fire & Rescue and a towing crew were called to extract a sport-utility vehicle that crashed through the yard of a home and onto a porch Wednesday afternoon.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. at a home on Twist Circle, just west of Memorial Parkway in South Huntsville.
