A Concord man in his 40’s was arrested for DUI and hit & run after he crashed into three cars, then minutes later crashed through a fence and into a home on Mt. Diablo Street on Friday afternoon around 3pm.

Police say the suspect was injured, but his injuries were not life-threatening. No other injuries were reported.

Thanks to the anonymous Claycordian who sent the picture and provided some of the information!

Glad no INNOCENT person was injured.

Oh my. Drunk driving in broad daylight. Pretty bad to be DUI at 3:00 PM. Now this idiot has wrecked three parked cars, and plowed down somebody’s fence. Lucky he didn’t punch a hole in the wall to the house.

SERIOUS drinking problem, this should be MANDATORY 5 year suspension of the license, plus the usual fines, insurance cancellation, and some jail time.

Luckily no one got hurt…but the he did, so it’s a FELONY now.

If the person whose house got hit needs a good contractor to fix the damage, I recommend Greg Skeen. He fixed our house after the car chase ended in my living room right before Xmas 2011. Did an excellent job.

You would think that with hitting three parked cars he’d get the message that his driving skills are not at their best at the moment and stop driving. Good thing the house he hit prevented him from going further.

Someone other than the DUI driver has to be hurt for 23153 CVC…

“23153. (a) It is unlawful for any person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver.”

Rats! Why can’t these DUI/Hit and Run drivers finish the job? This man needs to exit this earthly existence…without taking anyone else with him.

That location is right near Loma Vista school and not far from BART. There are a ton of people who walk that sidewalk, including me. Incredibly lucky he didn’t kill anyone.

@anon — ONE WHO KNOWS
The Rossmoor drunk driver/killer is a lawyer. A Judge at the CA BAR is deciding now whether or not to pull the killers license to practice law.

3pm on a weekday? He was probably just on his way to pick up his kids. Now there’s a happy thought. Please folks, finish running your errands BEFORE you start drinking.
