The Lyft driver was in tears as surveyed the damage. He told 10News that the car meant everything to him and was a source of his income.



SAN DIEGO - A Lyft driver crashed and rolled over in the Oak Park area early Friday morning, taking out a fire hydrant in the process.

The crash happened at around 2:40 a.m. on 54th and Nutmeg streets, according to authorities.

The driver said he was working long hours and fell asleep behind the wheel of his Kia right before the crash.

The broken hydrant sent water several feet into the air for nearly 20 minutes before crews shut down the water. The crash also caused damage to the concrete and left a large hole near the hydrant.

I feel bad for the guy. It shouldn't be this hard to make a living in this country. I long for the simpler days when a high school graduate could find a decent job and still have time to spend time with friends, family, and just enjoying life.

You know when you are tired. If you are driving and you feel yourself falling sleep, pull over and rest. If you have a pax, explain that you are tired and ask them to call another uber. Just email uber to refund the trip. This story is sad but could easily be avoided if the driver was more proactive.

He'll become a lease slave.
Insurance won't pay.
He was driving Uber.

Good thing he didn't have a passenger!!!!
He might have had insurance coverage with a passenger !
