Car crashes into house in Birdland

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A car with a shredded tire and a possibly intoxicated driver behind the wheel veered off a Linda Vista street Friday and smashed into a vacant house, authorities said.

Several residents reported seeing the silver 2001 Honda Accord speeding and circling through the neighborhood just east of State Route 163 about 7 a.m. before crashing into the home at the corner of Finch and Teebird lanes, according to San Diego police.

It was unclear what prompted the motorist's erratic driving, though a traffic officer believed the 36-year-old man might have been intoxicated, SDPD Lt. Andra Brown said.

Firefighters removed the driver, whose name was not released, from the damaged car, and medics took him to a hospital for an evaluation. It was unclear if he was injured, the lieutenant said.
