Man Allegedly Crashes Dump Truck Into Estranged Wife's Home in South LA

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A South Los Angeles woman filed multiple police reports against her husband after the man reportedly crashed a dump truck into her home and into parked cars on the street.

A man was caught on camera crashing a dump truck into the home and the other vehicles Sunday afternoon in the area of 107th Street and Normandie Avenue, ABC7 reported.

Patricia Dunn told the station that the man in the video is her husband, who she was divorcing, and said she feared for her life.

"A man under that kind of rage -- who's to say what he might do?" Dunn said. "He was trying to kill me. He really was."

Dunn said her bedroom was impacted by the truck. She also told the news station that he drove by her home three times, first crashing into the home in a Chevy Impala while she was still inside, then in a dump truck, and then back in the Impala again.

According to ABC7, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies took about 30 minutes to respond because the initial call came in as a traffic collision and not a crime.

Dunn was reportedly filing for a restraining order against her estranged husband. She said she is staying with someone else in case her husband returns.

The LASD told City News Service on Monday that multiple reports were filed in the case, but authorities declined to provide further information, other than to say it was an ongoing investigation.
