Man drives his truck into house after witnesses say he lost control coming around a corner

Driver loses control, hits house

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield police says a person driving through a neighborhood in central Bakersfield lost control and hit a house.

Just before 6 p.m. Sunday night, the driver of a red pickup truck lost control while driving on Agate Street, which is off of Planz Road just east of Highway 99.


A witness told 23 ABC the driver came around a corner quickly, swerved to avoid him and drove into the side of an attached garage.
"It was really loud and shocking because we were just working on a car and he came out of nowhere," said Ka Kuy, who lives nearby. "I thought he was coming toward us, but then he swerved to avoid us and then came on the lawn and hit the house."
BPD says neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor. The driver had minor injuries.
