El Paso, TX (KTSM) — An East El Paso family was awakened in the early morning hours Tuesday when a pickup truck crashed into their rock wall.
The crash happened about 1:30 a.m. in the 11000 block of Dick Mayers. According to El Paso police, the driver of a red pickup truck lost control while driving along a curve and drove into the front yard of a home, crashing into the wall, as well as a nearby fishing boat and trailer.
The truck stopped short of damaging a white sedan parked in the home's driveway.
The driver of the pickup was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. Then passenger in the truck was also arrested for outstanding warrants.
No injuries were reported.
Neighbors in the area said accidents in the area are very common. One woman said her front gate was damaged last year, and a different neighbor's front wall was also damaged in a separate crash.
