ANTIOCH -- Two homes on Buchanan Roadwere damaged after a car reportedly lost control and slammed into them late Friday.

Police said the car was traveling at a "very high" speed just before midnight when the driver, only identified as a 21-year-old man, lost control of the vehicle in the 1400 block of Buchanan Road, near San Jose Drive.

The car went over the center divide into oncoming traffic, knocking out a pad-mounted electrical transformer, before going through the side of a garage and then landing on its roof in the yard of a house next door.

No one in the car or in either of the homes was injured, police said.

Alcohol and drugs were not believed to be a factor in the crash, and the driver was not arrested, according to police.

The crash knocked out power to about 350 residences, according to a PG&E worker.

The damage to the homes was contained to only their exteriors, police said, but a damage estimate was not available.
