SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — A driver lost control of their vehicle Saturday afternoon, slamming through a San Leandro home’s carport and dangling precariously over an steep embankment.
According to the Alameda County Fire Department, crews responded to a 911 call reporting the crash in the 16000 block of Rolando Avenue near Miramar Avenue at 4:24 p.m. Saturday.
Alameda County Fire Department spokesperson Jo Leal said several fire crews arrived to discover that a four-door vehicle had slammed through a carport and was dangling over an embankment separating the carport from a neighboring residence.
Firefighters rescued the driver, who was uninjured, and then began shoring up the carport with a temporary support until it could be permanently repaired.
PG&E crews also made repairs to the power lines that came down after the car knocked down the utility weatherhead. The cause of the accident remained under investigation.
