Two men accused of DUI after Saratoga crash allegations

Posted on in DUI

Authorities claim that several 911 calls came in around 4:30 Monday morning reporting a loud noise that was consistent with some type of crash. Authorities responded to the neighborhood, and law enforcement says that they found the two cars wrecked at the residence.

Santa Clara deputies say that a Toyota and BMW were found crashed into the home, with the Toyota on top of the BMW. The Toyota reportedly had partially breached the living room of the residence.

Officials believe that the two young men had been racing in the street and failed to make a curve near the home. One of the cars is believed to have struck a boulder, sending the cars through the garage door of the home, and at least one of the vehicles partially into the interior of the residence.

Nobody inside the residence was injured, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Investigators claim that the cars were traveling as fast as 80 miles per hour before the wreck. Neither teen suffered life-threatening injuries. However, each young man reportedly will be facing Felony DUI and reckless driving charges in the incident.
