SAN DIEGO -- A car smashed through a residential garage, leaving the driver with serious injuries.

It happened on Sun Ray Court in Scripps Ranch around 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The male victim had major trauma and was extricated out of the vehicle by firefighters as it was smoking from the crash.

“The vehicle was on its side so there were difficulties extricating him,” said Fire Captain Rudy Hernandez of the City of San Diego.

The man was driving his 2014 Hyundai eastbound in the 11700 block of Cypress Canyon Road when he made a left turn onto the 11500 block of Sun Ray Court according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

"As (the driver) was turning, he made an unsafe movement to his left, lost control and crashed into a house," Heims said.

The driver was taken to a hospital with major head and face injuries, considered to be life-threatening, Heims said.

DUI was suspected and the crash was being investigated by SDPD Traffic Division.

The name of the driver was not disclosed.
