Police are hunting for the driver responsible for a high-speed crash that ended in the front yard of a home in Fountain Valley on Monday.

The crash happened around 4:30 a.m. at Ellis Avenue and Tamarind Street when a yellow Honda S2000 came off of Ellis Street at a high rate of speed, flipped over and crashed through a brick wall guarding the front lawn of a home.

No one inside the home was injured. Police say there were two people inside the Honda. One person fled the scene on foot, while another man remained at the scene. He was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. It was unclear which of the two occupants was the driver.

A Ellis Avenue was shut down in both directions as police investigated the accident. A neighbor told Eyewitness News that power was out in the neighborhood for about an hour following the crash.

Police believe excessive speed caused the accident.
