November 15, 2022 (El Cajon) -- The driver of a white compact vehicle lost control early this morning around 6 a.m. while making a left turn from West Park Avenue onto southbound Magnolia Avenue. It crashed into a sign after jumping over the curb. Consequently the tall Knox House Museum sign was knocked down from its foundation and appeared to be broken into two pieces.
No damage to the building was visible. Several residents nearby heard the incident noise as it happened.
El Cajon police responded within approximately two minutes to assess and control the situation.
The vehicle was wrecked severely and towed away quickly so traffic could resume normal flow.
