A violent crash damaged several parked cars and created an explosion in San Carlos overnight.
A white Ford F-150 STX pickup truck slammed into several cars parked along Bardonia Street around 12:40 a.m. Monday.
The driver launched the truck atop of another vehicle while driving along the street north of Navajo Road and east of State Route 125.
Residents said the sound of the crash was so loud it sounded more like an explosion.
“I ran out the front of the house and saw this nightmare in front of me,” said Chris who lives near the site of the crash. He asked us not to use his last name.
He said the truck was on fire so he grabbed a hose and tried to put out the flames while telling the truck’s driver to sit down.
“I’m really angry. He could’ve killed people. Could’ve killed himself,” the resident said.
It took two drivers more than two hours to clear the scene and tow away the vehicles.
San Diego police administered a field sobriety test on the driver and then led him away in handcuffs.
