A car crashed through a wall and into the back yard of a Lakeside home Tuesday and the homeowner says it's the seventh time something like this has happened.
This is Winter Gardens Blvd and you can see the curve.
A man said he lost control of his car on the wet road while traveling on Winter Gardens Boulevard at 8:40 a.m.
The vehicle slammed straight into the back yard, going through a wall reinforced with steel as well as fruit trees, outdoor furniture, a grill and a basketball hoop.
This is the seventh time in 12 years a car has lost control on the curve along Winter Gardens Boulevard, according to the homeowner.
The last time was in October.
California Highway Patrol officers told NBC 7 this is the fourth time.
The man who lives at the home said he's been in discussions with county officials to put in a stoplight. NBC 7 is checking on that request.
CHP said the crash was a combination of speed, bald tires and wet roads.
“On rainy days, slow down,” said Sgt. Damian Budwine. “ You can't drive the normal 65 -75 mph that people tend to drive on the freeway, especially on the surface streets right after it starts raining. The roadways are just too slippery.”
The homeowner says in a way, he's lucky. His young daughters were at home and sometimes they play in this area.
