Suspected drunk driver jailed after car smashes into home

A car with a suspected drunk driver at the wheel crashed into a Lubbock residence at 7th and Iola early yesterday. Police said the accident happened around 4:15 a.m. when 27-year-old Mario Olivas lost control of his vehicle. No one was home at the time. Neighbors came out to persuade the driver not to leave the scene. One person, Kimbery Bouldin, said the resident at the house hit by the car was fortunate because he would have been sleeping right where the car stopped. Olivas was taken to the Lubbock County Jail.
