A bizarre crash on the 1400 block of West 17th Street in San Pedro this morning left a car suspended five feet off the ground and wedged between two homes.

The motorist was under the influence of alcohol, according to police, and lost control of the vehicle around 1:15 a.m. after running a stop sign and hitting a curb. The driver and the passenger, both under 21, were not seriously injured. The same can not be said for the homes hit by the vehicle.

The Ford Fusion shattered the wall of a dining room in one residence and caused kitchen damage in the other estimated at $100,000, reports ABC Local.
