The driver of a Honda CR-V was hospitalized Saturday after crashing his compact SUV into an unoccupied house.

The lone occupant of the vehicle experienced minor back injuries and was taken to a hospital for evaluation, said Lt. Rob Lamborghini of Glendora Police. He was unwilling to say whether the driver was under the influence or not.

Police and firefighters responded to the crash at 10:56 a.m. at the northwest corner of Bonnie Cove Avenue and East Plymouth Street. The driver was northbound on Bonnie Cove and attempted to turn west onto Plymouth and the driver could not negotiate the turn, Lamborghini said.

David Evans rents the home that was damaged. He and his two children were not home at the time of the collision. Evans was at work when he got a call from his neighbor about the crash.

Evans noted drivers tend to speed through the neighborhood frequently.

“Before I lived here it happened. I heard they sheared the fire hydrant off and ended up in the same spot,” Evans said.

A tow truck driver was able to drive the CR-V under its own power before towing it away from the scene.
