Alleged drunk driver rams into Concord home

A man suspected of driving drunk was arrested early this morning after crashing into the backyard a Concord home where a family of three was sleeping, a police sergeant said.

The crash happened around 3:40 a.m. when a 49-year-old Concord man crashed his car into a fence between a house’s front and backyards in the 4000 block of Concord Boulevard, Concord police Sgt. Jeff Ross said.

The car narrowly missed the house, where two adults and a child were sleeping, according to Ross.

Neighbors heard the crash and came to detain the driver until police arrived, he said.

The driver was taken to a hospital to be treated for moderate injuries and arrested on suspicion of DUI, Ross said.

The man, whose name has not been released, was the only person inside the car. No other injuries were reported.
