A family asleep in their San Francisco Bayview District home early Friday thought they have been awakened by an earthquake until they looked out their window.
San Francisco police said a Chevrolet coupe slammed into the garage of the home in the 1200 block of Hawes St. at 4 .a.m.
The driver quickly fled from the scene, leaving the car partially inside the garage. The collision damaged a car parked in the garage, a new dryer and other items.
Fortunately, no one was injured, but the home may have suffered $10,000 in damages.
“All of a sudden I felt this big jolt,” said Harmony Love, who lives in the home with her family. “It (the house) was shaking so I thought it was the big earthquake. We looked outside and saw the car.”
Love said what they saw shocked them.
“It was very surprising,” she said. “We came outside and nobody was here. All the stones and rocks were on the ground (from the garage wall).”
Sources told KTVU the car was owned by a Fairfield man, but it was not known if he was driving the car at the time of the crash.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
