SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 19-year-old suspected drunken Chevrolet Suburban driver whose SUV struck two pedestrians and two parked cars as he left a party Sunday was in custody.
The suspect, whose name police withheld, lost control of the big SUV in the 700 block of Glencoe Dr. about 1:45 a.m., San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
"As he pulled away from the curb, he accelerated and lost control of the Suburban. He drove onto the wrong side of the street and struck two parked cars," Stafford said. "He also struck two pedestrians."
One pedestrian, 19, suffered a head injury, and the other, 20, suffered a broken clavicle and broken ribs, he said.
