Car Stops Feet From Sleeping Woman After Crashing Into El Cajon Home

A car came crashing through the bedroom wall of an El Cajon woman’s home Friday, coming to a halt a few feet from where she was sleeping.

The crash happened just before 12:30 a.m. Friday at a home at the end of a cul-de-sac off Greenfield Drive, just west of Interstate 8. The El Cajon Police Department said three girls ran from the vehicle. 

Witnesses said ECPD was patrolling the area with a helicopter and on the ground in search of the occupants.

Two juveniles that may have been connected to the crash were located but it was not clear if they were detained, ECPD said.

The 85-year-old woman inside the home said she was shaken up and confused when the crash woke her. Luckily, she was not injured. 

"I didn’t feel nothing. I heard something, I thought it was an earthquake," Mary Smith said. 

A building inspector was assessing the damage to the home.
