EL PASO - You're not going to believe this: last night a suspected drunk driver crashed her car into a NewsChannel 9 photographer's backyard in far east El Paso.

Needless, to say, we were first on the scene.

The car smashed through our photographer's rock wall. That woke him up, and his first instinct was to grab his camera and run outside.

"She ran through our backyard, she ran through our rock wall," said Sandi Wilburn, who also lives at the home. "She started cussing my husband out and she eventually took off on foot down the street."

Even though the woman took off running after the crash, she'll likely get caught. Not only did she leave her car behind, police also found her cell phone inside. No one was hurt, but of course our photographer's family was shook up.

"We knew this was eventually going to happen," Wilburn said. "I'm always calling the cops. There's a lot of people who race up and down this street and they're always speeding."
