SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A hit-and-run driver is on the loose after hitting a car then slamming into a house.

It happened around 7:30 a.m. Friday at the intersection of 36th and Landis streets in City Heights.

Witnesses say a Nissan Maxima failed to yield and hit a car that had the right of way.

"The Maxima then careened off into a house on Landis Street, and took out the retaining wall and wrought iron fence of the house," said Lt. Eric Hayes.

A passenger in the Maxima was detained at the scene.

The driver that ran off on foot is described as a heavy set Hispanic woman with dark maroon or purple hair.

The driver of the car that was hit suffered minor injuries.
