FONTANA (CBSLA.com) – A suspected drunk driver was arrested after crashing his SUV into a Fontana home early Saturday morning and injuring two people.
Fontana police report that at 3:15 a.m., 41-year-old Kelly Stovall was driving south in the 7700 block of Alder Avenue when his Chevrolet Tahoe smashed through the wall of a bedroom where a couple was asleep.
The victims were pinned under the SUV and rescued by San Bernardino County firefighters, who said they suffered broken bones, bumps and bruises.
Police said the couple’s two young daughters were not home at the time. A second family of five also lives in the house. They were not hurt.
Ana Abarca, who lives in the house, described being jolted awake by the impact. “Like an earthquake, it was bad. I thought somebody was breaking in, or it was an earthquake,” she said.
All nine residents are displaced because the house was declared temporarily unlivable.
“I hope this changes people’s perspective on drinking and driving or anything that can cause accidents,” said neighbor Charlie Cabello.
