Man Arrested For DUI After Crashing Into San Francisco Home

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A Salinas man was arrested by San Francisco police Tuesday night on suspicion of driving under the influence after he allegedly crashed a car into a home in the city’s Outer Richmond neighborhood, a police spokesman said.

Jovanni Ramirez, 23, was driving west on Balboa Street when he veered into a home at 43rd Avenue at about 9:30 p.m., Officer Albie Esparza said.

The residents, who were home at the time of the crash, were uninjured, he said.

Ramirez was transported to a hospital for treatment of a minor injury. Upon his release, he was cited on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI, Esparza said.

A city building inspector responded to the home and red-tagged it for limited use, Esparza said.
