Driver Under the Influence Of McDonald's Plows Through Condo
A driver eating a late-night snack from McDonald's ended up crashing an SUV through a condo in the Valley this morning.The Ford Expedition ended up almost fully inside a Chatworth condo early this morning, according to City News Service. Fortunately, no one was injured. The three people in the condo were sleeping upstairs.
The crash happened this morning around 2:19 am. A passenger told a videographer that both the driver and passenger were eating some food from McDonald's at the time of the crash. The driver lost control on a sharp curve and ended up overcorrecting before smashing into the condo.
Police confirmed this report. Los Angeles Police Sgt. Paul McLaughlin told CNS, "I was told they were coming around a corner, possibly too fast, lost control, hit a curb, overcorrected and ended up driving into this condo."
There was no evidence alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, and the driver wasn't cited, police said. Although the SUV punched a 10-foot-wide hole in the condo, it did not affect the building's structural integrity.
