A woman was arrested after she crashed her car into the backyard of a Vista home, destroying a dog house and injuring two dogs.

One of the residents at the home on Foothills Drive heard a loud boom around 10:30 p.m. Monday. When he walked outside, he saw the vehicle surrounded by debris in the backyard.

The resident, identified as Jason, claims the female driver and male passenger initially tried to flee the scene.

He also claims they offered $150 to cover the damage if the residents didn’t call police.

One dog was taken to a nearby veterinary hospital where he’s being treated for injuries to his hip and leg, Jason said. He said the second dog suffered minor scratches.

The vehicle took out several trees and damaged a fence and pool gate.

California Highway Patrol officers handcuffed the driver and arrested her on suspicion of driving under the influence.
