Cars smashed in suspected DUI crash in Mira Mesa

Crash occurred in 9600 block of Gold Coast Dr

SAN DIEGO - A suspected DUI driver was booked in jail Monday after crashing her BMW into several parked cars in Mira Mesa.

The crash happened in the 9600 block of Gold Coast Drive at 11:45 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

10News learned that the BMW plowed into a pickup truck, sending it into another car. Five vehicles, including the driver's car, were damaged in the wreck.

Police officers at the scene conducted a sobriety test for the woman driving the BMW and arrested her.

A check of the BMW's registration showed that the vehicle belonged to Anna Tkachenko. The 24-year-old was booked into Las Colinas Detention Facility. As of noon Monday, she was no longer in custody.

10News learned that one of the damaged cars belongs to a Sacramento woman with four kids who was stuck in San Diego because of the crash.  

"All I have to do now … is wait for one of the cars to move so I can get out of that spot," said Lashaun Burke, who was in San Diego for a wedding.

"No one was in the cars, but someone could have really gotten hurt," Burke told 10News.
