Oct. 18, 2011

A man, his wife and son were cited for obstruction for lying to police about an accident the boy had that caused a tree to hit a neighboring house.

According to the Glendale police report:

The 15-year-old boy lost control of the car while pulling out of his driveway and drove onto a neighbor's yard knocking over two trees, one of them hitting the house, in the 1800 block of West Wayside Drive about 7 p.m. Oct. 9.

The woman, 55, said she was in the car with the boy who had a learner's permit.

The boy and his father, 53, told the same story. However, the boy did not have a permit and the woman was not in the car.

The father was also cited for permitting an unauthorized driver to drive and the boy was cited for driving without a valid license.

The father said he would pay for damage, which were not listed.
