Suspected Drunk Driver Crashes into City Terrace Home

By City News Report

A man lost control of his red pickup truck that overturned and crashed into a home in the City Terrace area of East Los Angeles late Sunday night, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported at 10:22 p.m. on April 14 in the 3500 block of Blanchard Street, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball in the Traffic Management Center.

“The vehicle overturned into the house and the husband held him down until the CHP got there,” Kimball said. “Officers at the scene said the driver had been drinking.”

A news photographer at the scene said the truck crashed through a wrought iron fence and damaged the yard before sliding into the house, and that those areas appeared to bear the brunt of the damage.

No injuries were reported, Kimball said. There were indications the truck struck several vehicles before hitting the house.
