Vehicle Damages Structure on Los Coches Road


On Thursday, January 30th, 2014 at 2:03 a.m. the Heartland Communications Center received a 911 call reference a vehicle that had just struck a structure in the 8800 block of Los Coches Road. Assigned to the alarm were three structural engines, a truck company, an ALS medic unit, and a chief officer.

On the arrival of Engine 3 and Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Fire Station) they discovered a vehicle that had struck a residential structure with sufficient force to breech the wall. Crews initiated a medical assessment on the driver while other crews entered the structure to look for additional victims. On inspection of the interior of the building it was discovered that the impact had narrowly missed a crib occupied by a small child. Much to the relief of crews the child was unharmed.

One patient was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Crews remained on-scene till the vehicle could be removed from the structure. The accident is currently being investigated by CHP.

A total of 12 Lakeside personnel responded to the incident, assisted by the Santee Fire Department.
