A car ran into this home early Saturday morning between two homes on McDonald Way and Norseman Road. The aftermath was caught on camera and the video was shared exclusively with 23ABC.

The crash was heard blocks away and the driver of the SUV was only 15 years old. When the car hit the home, it struck a gas main and caused a leak that led to the evacuation of several people in the neighborhood. The juvenile fled but was arrested shortly after. The owner is still without gas and cleanup began today. 

23ABC spoke with SoCalGas today and they said if you encounter a leaking natural gas pipe or meter you should immediately evacuate the area and get to a safe location, call 9-1-1 and do not start any fire.
