Driver Flees After Crashing Car Through Canoga Park Home

CANOGA PARK (CBS) — A car crashed into a Canoga Park home Saturday severing a natural gas line, but no one was injured.

The accident took place in the 19900 block of Covello Road about 4:15 a.m., according to a Los Angeles Fire Department floor captain.

“The car went through the living room, another room, and out the other side, where it hit a gas line,” said Los Angeles police Sgt. Sabrina Kuhn of the Topanga Station.

No one in the house was injured, and the driver ran off, Kuhn added.

    Just another unlisenced, uninsured illegal alian who even if caught by L.A.P.D. his vehicle would not be impounded. Of course if you are a citizen without that lisence goodby car.

      Seriously dude, how do you even gather enough evidence from this short article to know that it’s an illegal immigrant? Know what you’re saying before you start your racist rant. They could have been Barney or SpongeBob for all we know. And if you’re so patriotic, try making our country proud by learning how to spell properly because your English is APPALLING.

        even with the bad spelling…he is telling the truth.

        I agree. “Dean” is an “alian” from another planet. Moron comes in here thinking he’s smart enough to have solved the case, yet he/she can’t even spell correctly.

    Meet your California Dept. of Motor Vehicles and you will understand why this agency has become the corrupt mess it has become and why certain people get special privileges.

    Corrupt DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.

    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.

    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.

  • joe arpiao for pres

    you are so right dean. 99% of the people that leave these accidents is illegal & on their way to mexico. they have no problem leaving this country when they f up something. now if this car dont have any insurance…who rebuild the house ? it was damage pretty bad. would have been nice if the driver had no way of getting out. oh well…he was probably late to a soccer game.

  • Doug

    Dean is right. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.

  • Timothy McGarry

    All racism aside, think he was drunk?

    Press 2 for spanish!

    That sounds exactly like Jose’s driving. Well, none of them can drive, EVER! Either they are doing drug behind the wheel, selling or cultivating. What’s new? And they should better off crash their own kind.
