DEL MAR, Calif. — An out-of-control vehicle driven by a suspected drunk driver damaged city and community property in Del Mar Saturday, officials said.

The Chevrolet Cobalt sped north near the 2100 block of Jimmy Durante Boulevard when its driver, 21, lost control of the car and careened to the other side of the road around 3:30 a.m., according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The car struck the curb and a fire hydrant, which launched it into the air, officials said. Before it came to rest, the car also hit a tree, a mailbox, and the front of a business suite.

The driver was treated for severe head injuries. He is suspected of drunk driving, the sheriff’s department said.

Deputies closed both sides of the street for several hours as they investigated.

The business was deemed structurally sound but the owner was notified to board it up.

No one else was injured.
