San Diego DUI lawyers announced today that San Diego County Sheriff’s officials are looking for a suspected San Diego DUI / drunk driver who walked away from a hospital after he crashed his sport utility vehicle into three homes late Thursday night.
No one inside the homes was injured.
San Diego DUI attorneys said Rahin Mitchell, 32, was behind the wheel of a SUV that caused a trail of destruction so extensive that one of the homes hit along Massachusetts Avenue had to be condemned.
Mitchell, who was on probation for two prior DUI arrests, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. But he left a hospital where he was taken for treatment of possible internal injuries.
San Diego DUI lawyers understand Sheriff’s officials said they will track him down and charge him with felony DUI.
His passenger, a woman, was taken to the hospital with complaints of back pain. San Diego DUI lawyers are told her injuries were not life-threatening.
The SUV crashed into several homes on Massachusetts Avenue near San Altos Place around 11:45 p.m.
San Diego DUI lawyers hear Mitchell lost control of his SUV and struck the first home, and the vehicle then became airborne. It went over a small pickup parked in the driveway of a second home before striking a second vehicle in the same driveway.
The SUV then continued through the garage of the house and took out part of the kitchen before coming to a stop after hitting a vehicle in the driveway of the third home, San Diego DUI lawyers learned.
