A crash that peeled metal off the fender of a four door car woke residents of the 5200 block of Mountain Vista at about 3 a.m. Nov. 22.

People at the scene said the driver appeared to stagger away from the car, which was travelling west when it went off the road, narrowly missed a vehicle parked in a driveway, wiped out two shrubs, took out a Citywest box on someone’s front lawn and spun around nearly 180 degrees, coming to a stop facing southeast on a front lawn.

The airbags had deployed and could be seen spread across the inside of the driver’s window.

An ambulance left the scene after 3 a.m.  and a fire engine and police vehicle left after 3:30 a.m.

The driver’s condition and other details weren’t known.
