SAN DIEGO — A driver hit a fire hydrant, crossed a yard and then slammed into the garage of a La Presa home early Wednesday.

The crash happened around 5:45 a.m. at a house on the corner of Darby Street and Jamacha Road, according to California Highway Patrol. The driver told officers that he lost control after getting cut off on Jamacha.

His red sedan careened off the street and across some grass, taking out the hydrant before crashing into the garage, where his vehicle also hit a parked car. The driver was taken to the hospital but the severity of his injuries wasn’t immediately clear, a San Diego Fire-Rescue official said at the scene.

A westbound lane on Jamacha Road was blocked by fire trucks and police vehicles after the crash. CHP coordinated a pickup truck to come get the sedan, which came to a rest in the garage with the fire hydrant pinned beneath it.

Authorities did not find any signs that gas or electricity lines were damaged in their initial inspection, according to the fire official. While the garage was damaged, authorities said the house itself appeared structurally sound, and that the residents may be allowed to get back inside later Wednesday morning.
