Paramedics took Oliveira to a local hospital, where he was pronounced deceased. Four people who were inside the home at the time of the wreck — including a 7-year-old girl — were not hurt.
The homeowner said the impact of the crash was so powerful, it shook the house.
WPTV went to the property Wednesday morning and saw a front window broken and tire marks on the lawn.
It's unclear what caused Oliveira to lose control of his car. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
