SAN DIEGO — Deputies arrested a driver after he crashed into a Tesla and later a house in Encinitas early Sunday morning, officials said.

The driver hit the home on Santa Fe Drive, near Stratford Drive, around 2 a.m.

The collision did not severely damage the home, but it took out a fence and some landscaping, and hit a utility line that started leaking gas, an Encinitas Fire-Rescue battalion chief told OnScene TV. That crash came after the driver also hit a Tesla, whose owner waited to speak with authorities outside the home where the driver hit the gas line.

It wasn’t immediately clear how much time passed between the two collisions, but a San Diego County Sheriff’s Department watch commander confirmed they arrested the driver at the scene. The watch commander did not state his potential charges.

The battalion chief said no one was seriously hurt and the residents were able to remain in their home after the gas leak was resolved.
