A black Acura hit a large tree, knocked down a fence, tore through a lawn and smashed into three parked cars in a driveway on San Mateo Drive near Middle Avenue in the early-morning hours Sunday, Jan. 3, according to Menlo Park police.
The collision was reported around 3 a.m.; the driver fled before police arrived. Police found a cell phone and a wallet with an identification card in the car, and are trying to determine whether they belong to the driver.
The car came to rest after hitting a black Acura sports-utility vehicle, a black Volkswagen passenger car, and a white Toyota van -- all parked in the same driveway, according to police spokeswoman Nicole Acker.
Police don't know whether the driver was drunk at the time. No injuries were reported.
