Alleged drunk driver smashes into Long Beach home

August 14, 2013|By Joseph Serna

Police were investigating Wednesday a car crash involving an alleged drunk driver who lost control and smashed into a Long Beach home.

The incident occurred about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday in the 2600 block of East 7th Street when the car hopped a curb, barreled through a fence and slammed into a house, KTLA-TV reported.

A photo of the crash showed the vehicle resting on its two left wheels, its front end lodged awkwardly inside the residence.

A neighbor told KTLA that when the driver got out of the vehicle, empty beer cans came spilling out.

“Just empty cans…it sounded like ‘clank, clank, clank’…like a slot machine,” witness Korel Bouley told the TV station.

The driver tried to escape but was caught by police, the station reported.
