Little Girl Gets Rude Awakening From Drunk Driver

SANTA MARIA — A drunk driver trying to evade police crashed into a 5-year-old girl’s bedroom Wednesday shortly after 9 p.m. The girl received minor injuries.

Police arrested Moises Vazquez, 20, on charges of drunk driving, according to a press release from Santa Maria Police Department. His passenger, Ricardo Vazquez, 19, was arrested for public intoxication.

Police initially tried to pull Vazquez over at Broadway and Fesler for a vehicle code violation. Vazquez would not yield to officers, led them on a half-mile pursuit, and subsequently lost control of his vehicle before it careened into a converted garage in the 800 block of North Thornburg.
