Linda Vista home left with property damage after suspected drunk driving car accident.
Authorities say that on Thursday, June 24, 2010, a man backed up his sport-utility vehicle into a parked car. That car accident caused the previously parked car to roll into Colusa Street and crash into a house on the 1200 block just before 10:00 p.m.
Police say the man who backed up his SUV was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, and he was later arrested for DUI charges.
No one was home at the time, so no injuries or wrongful deaths were a result of the freak DUI car accident, but there’s no telling what could have happened if a family had been at the home.
