A 20-year-old driver was injured after he lost control of his car and plowed into a home in Chula Vista Tuesday afternoon.
The incident happened around 4 p.m. at a residence in the 2400-block of Eagle Valley Drive.
Chula Vista Fire Department officials said that, for unknown reasons, the driver veered off the road and crashed through a fence and into a two-story home. The driver became trapped inside his car following the collision.
By 4:05 p.m., emergency workers had extricated the driver from the wreckage. He was transported to a local hospital. The extent of his injuries is not yet known.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Neighbors said the driver told them his accelerator stuck.
The crash caused severe damage to the house, destroying one wall and at least one room. The owner of the home was not there at the time of the crash and was unharmed.
The Chula Vista neighborhood where this happened is filled with children and parents said they were grateful no one was on the sidewalk at the time of the incident. Other than the driver, no one else was injured.
