Fleeing Driver Crashes Into Lewisville Home

LEWISVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A man fleeing from the police crashed into a home in Lewisville. The incident happened at about 1:00 a.m. Thursday morning in the 1300 block of Bobing Drive. Two people were in the home at the time of the crash, but neither were injured.

Shortly after the crash, officers arrested 20-year-old Everette Alvarado, Jr. on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

According to an official with the Lewisville Police Department, a sergeant saw two cars at a stop sign a short distance away from the home. The first driver was still seated in his car while the second driver, later identified as Alvarado, was standing at the driver’s side window of the first car.

The sergeant stopped to ask the two men if everything was okay, and the first driver said that things were fine. Alvarado, however, walked back to his vehicle and quickly drove away from the scene, hitting the first car in the process. A short time later, officers were alerted about the crash into the home.

Police say Alvarado’s vehicle jumped over a curb, plowed through a brick fence, destroyed a transformer and entered the backyard of a home – all before hitting the house in a kitchen area.

David and Teresa Best are the homeowners who received a scary wake-up call after the crash made a big sound. “We’re in bed asleep and we just woke up to a loud boom, like a big clap of thunder,” said David Best. “We came out and there was a car in the kitchen in the back of the house.”

“It hit quick and it was fast and it scared us,” Teresa Best said.

“I thought I was dreaming,” David Best added. “It was just crazy, surreal.”

The couple told police they saw Alvarado still in the car as it sat in their kitchen. Emergency crews came quickly to extract the driver and take him to the hospital. He was treated and taken to jail.

The house is currently being held together by temporary poles. The couple cannot stay in the home because the busted transformer took out electricity to several nearby houses, but Teresa Best is staying positive. “I’ll be alright,” she said. “I got a good man.”

    Gee Barry…did you take Texas History back in 7th grade. You should know that Hispanics have lived in this region since before this state was established. Some of our families (yes, I am hispanic) have lived in “Texas” for hundreds of years before settlers got here. What a dumb assumption that he is an “immigrant”. Please re-visit your Texas history and know that not all hispanics are immigrants. I am a second generation Texan with a Master’s degree. My grandparents came here at the turn of the 20th century and did their best not only for their own kids but for the generations to come.
