A car crashed into a home near Washington and Torrey Pines just feet from where a teenager was sleeping Monday morning.

"I was half asleep, I could barely like process what was going on," said Daniel Linares. 

Linares, 16, was not injured.

Police say that the driver and the homeowner got into a fight after the crash before police arrived. The driver, who is suspected of being under the influence, was taken to hospital with minor injuries. 

"I told him just relax, let me call the cops," said Linares's father Felipe, "...it just turned into a brawl."

According to witnesses, the driver may have been attempting to flee after a collision with a different vehicle moments before.

The Linares family says two of their cars were damaged.
