COSTA MESA – A man later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence crashed into a house early Wednesday morning, narrowly missing a couple and their child inside, officials said.
The 26-year-old driver crashed into the home at 1:40 a.m., said Sgt. Patrick Wessel of the Costa Mesa Police Department.
A woman suffered cuts from debris, he said. She was taken to a hospital.
The crash was reported in the 1600 block of Myrtlewood Street, a residential neighborhood where the driver “missed a turn,” Wessel said.
The car, occupied by the driver and a passenger, crashed through a wall of the home between two rooms.
Lawrence Smith, a Costa Mesa resident identified as the driver, was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, Wessel said.
Smith and his passenger were not injured in the crash.
