A 62-year-old man will face charges of driving under the influence after crashing a van into the Robb Field Skate Park located in Ocean Beach in San Diego, California early Tuesday morning. According to a post by NBC 7, the crash occurred shortly before 4:00am. The driver was brought to a nearby hospital with minor injuries but no other injuries were reported.
The vehicle leaped over fences before skating around one of the park’s basins and landing in an 8-foot deep concrete bowl that resembles an empty swimming pool.
“Most of the time the jersey wall prevents [accidents] however there are those freak occasions when a car can climb the jersey wall and it turned it into essentially a ramp that launched it over those two fences,” said San Diego police said Lt. David Rohowits.
