Suspected DUI driver loses control, damages home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A suspected drunk driver is in jail Thursday, after crashing into a house in Clairemont Mesa.

The car crashed through a brick wall and a backyard, sending bricks and other debris everywhere. The accident happened at the end of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard.

The homeowner says drivers often confuse her street for Regents Road and lose control when they realize it is a dead end.

"A lot of people come sailing down that've had a little too much but uh, a lot of GPS will read as if it goes through. A lot of people in this neighborhood and in the city have actually called the companies to say 'hey ya know this is not exactly a road,'” said Kristen Zerr. “If I had a dollar for every person that's come down this street going way too fast and come up on almost two wheels, we could pay for all the repairs now. It's a very dynamic corner."

No one in the home was hurt and neither was the driver.
