JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A doorbell camera captured a driver crashing into a Littleton-area home Monday, severing a gas line and forcing people in about 15 nearby homes to evacuate.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said the crash happened on West Coco Drive, which is in the Ken Caryl neighborhood in the area of C-470 and Kipling Parkway. About 15 homes in the area were evacuated due to the severed gas line.
The Colorado State Patrol said the driver crashed into the home and hit the gas line around 4:15 p.m. The sheriff's office said around 6:15 p.m. that they were lifting the evacuations.
A neighbor's doorbell camera captured the crash.
The crash happened as the driver was running from the scene of another crash in the area of Wadsworth Boulevard and Chatfield Avenue, CSP said. The other driver in that crash followed her to the scene of the crash into the home, CSP said.
According to court documents, two neighbors who saw the crash "physically detained" the driver until getting her away from the area due to the gas leak. The two had seen the driver climb from the driver's seat to the passenger door to get out of the Jeep, the document says.
The driver was arrested on DUI and traffic-related charges, according to court documents.
No injuries were reported in either crash.
