A Temecula man crashed his SUV into a light pole that then fell onto another SUV on Saturday, Feb. 7 at 4:18 p.m., according to police on scene.

The crash in the 30200 block of Buccaneer Bay in Temecula only caused property damage and no one was injured, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to 20-year-old Nicholos Laurencio, he went to his friend’s house to help him move out due to a family dispute, but the dispute soon escalated.

Once the dispute between the family members escalated, Laurencio then tried backing up his SUV to leave the scene and that’s when he backed into the street light.

“I was just trying to get away from the scene,” Laurencio said. “Just too much commotion, not thinking and not realizing what was going on. I was just trying to help him out … it backfired”

Once the SUV hit the light pole, it then fell onto another SUV causing minor damage and a broken window.

Laurencio told Valley News on scene that lessons were learned during the incident and to not overreact.

“Think before I do anything,” Laurencio said. “Don’t worry, don’t stress.”
