CBS Exclusive: Car Crashes Into Newport Beach Home

NEWPORT BEACH (CBS) — A traffic accident in Corona del Mar Thursday ended with a car crashing into a home, but no one was injured.

Two cars were involved in some sort of accident about 10:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Iris Avenue, said Newport Beach Fire Department spokesman Jennifer Schulz. One of the cars veered off the road, down an embankment and into a rear bedroom of the single-story home, she said.

CBS2 was on scene and exclusively captured video of accident.

Newport Beach firefighters had to shore up the home so the tow truck could remove the vehicle from the residence, Schulz said.

Neither driver was injured in the accident, but the collision caused “significant damage” to the house, Schulz said.
