According to Local 10 and NBC Local San Diego, in two separate and unrelated incidents, cars crashed into San Diego homes. First, around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, December 17, a 20-year-old motorist was driving along Eagle Valley Drive in Chula Vista. When the driver reached the 2400 block, he lost control of his car and swerved into a two-story home. The impact dented the driver’s doors such that the driver was trapped inside the automobile. Chula Vista Fire Department arrived on the scene soon after the accident and freed the driver. Thankfully, no one was present in the house at the time of the accident, but the crash still destroyed a wall and the room behind it. The Chula Vista neighborhood often has many families walking about on the sidewalks, and the driver’s parents stated that despite the destruction they were grateful that no one was walking around at the time.
Then, around 10:15 p.m. the same day, a Honda Accord was driving around an apartment complex located at Menlo Avenue and Olive Street. The car then lost power and subsequently could no longer brake or use power-steering. The car swerved and crashed into an apartment building. A mother in the building was asleep when she thought she felt an earthquake. In fact, it was the Honda Accord bursting into her bedroom and launching her bed away from the wall. Thankfully, no one was hurt. However, there is now a large hole in the woman’s apartment that needs repair.
