An SUV drove over a street sign and a bus bench and into a resident’s front yard Monday evening, flipping on to its side in the process.
The wreck damaged the front porch of the house, located at the corner of Dean Keeton and Beanna Streets. Jenny Jen, resident of the home, said she came outside when she heard the noise. Bystanders Aaron Jernigan and Matt Seay witnessed the crash and Seay said when they went to help, the driver was erratic.
“He was completely erratic,” Seay said. “He kept screaming about his girlfriend, ‘oh my god, my girlfriend,’ but no one else was in there.”
Jen said Seay, Jernigan and others broke the back window to pull him out.
A tow truck pulled the car out of the front yard after flipping it back on to its wheels around 11:15 p.m. Austin Police Department Sgt. Rusty Torres said police have not determined what caused the wreck. He said the driver was the only person injured, and his injuries are not serious.
