As dinnertime rolls around, so does SUV

A family of four got a surprise dinner guest Saturday evening when a man rolled his car into their Bookcliff Avenue home.

The family was having supper around 8 p.m. when the man rolled his silver-seagreen Toyota SUV into the home at 1002 Bookcliff Ave, taking out a bedroom window, according to Grand Junction police Sgt. Jim Creasy. Creasy said no one was hurt, and the driver crawled out from under the overturned vehicle.

Creasy said speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the crash. The SUV left skid marks on Bookcliff Avenue, took out a mailbox and downed a chain-link fence before hitting the residence.

Grand Junction police and firefighters went to the scene after neighbors heard the crash and called 911, according to a woman who lives in the neighborhood. The driver was found to have felony arrest warrants in his name, Creasy said.
