Man drives into garage door then flips SUV

A 26-year-old man was arrested Friday after he allegedly became paranoid while high on cocaine and drove an SUV through a residential garage door before flipping the vehicle in a Carlsbad intersection, police said.

Thomas MacMillan drove a black Range Rover through the garage door in the 2700 block of Vista Del Oro about 5:15 a.m, said CPD Lt. Matt Magro.

At the same time MacMillan’s family was calling to report the garage door crash, dispatchers began getting several 911 calls about a rollover crash at the intersection of Alga and Alicante roads, Magro said.

MacMillan was partially ejected in the rollover crash and was lying unconscious when officers arrived, but then got up and ran into traffic, according to the lieutenant. Officers quickly caught up to MacMillan and arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence.

He was taken to a hospital to treat injuries related to the rollover crash, Magro said.

No other injuries were reported.
