Car Fails to Take Turn, Slams Into El Cajon Home

An El Cajon woman was injured when a man drove his car into the front of her home early Tuesday.

The driver of a Toyota Corolla smashed through a wrought-iron fence in the front yard of the home near N 1st Street and Broadway at approximately 1 a.m.

The home is situated at the end of street but instead of making a turn, the vehicle went straight into the house.

El Cajon Police responded and administered a field sobriety test on the driver.

He was taken into custody and will likely face charges of driving under the influence, police said.

The resident suffered minor injuries and was picked up by a relative.
