Teen's Car Lands in a Sleeping Family's Front Yard
A Dona Ana County family got a rude awakening after a car literally flew into their front yard while they slept.
The crash killed the 18-year-old driver, Raul Maldonado of Vado, who police day lost control on Stern Rd. around 2:30 in the morning.
The car veered off the road, hit a tree, went airborne, then slammed into a fence in the family's yard.
Police say speed was a factor and alcohol was not involved.
