Residents in San Marcos woke up to a huge mess Monday morning after a driver crashed a SUV into a backyard.
The crashed happened around 11:30 p.m. on Nordahl and Avocado Way.
The San Marcos Fire Department says a driver took out mailboxes and knocked over trashcans before it overturned and rolled into the backyard. The SUV came just a couple of feet away from a home, in which a young man was on his iPhone.
Brandon Worley says he went outside after hearing a tumble and a crash. That’s when he saw a man trying to go over his fence. He says he asked the driver if he was okay, and told the driver he didn’t have to run away. But that didn’t stop the driver from running away --- leaving the mangled SUV and debris everywhere.
Worley says the car came so close to his home that it’s pretty scary to think how much of a close call this was.
According to California Highway Patrol, the driver has not been found as of yet.
