SAN DIEGO — A motorist who drove a car through the side of a garage early Thursday, ran off before police arrived to investigate the accident.
The driver was gone when patrol officers arrived at the accident scene near Polk and Menlo avenues at about 1:30 a.m.
Investigators found a Nissan sedan with its front end through a wall of the garage. Utility crews had to be called to turn off water to the home, because the car also broke a water line.
Police were trying to determine the registered owner of the car.
