San Diego DUI suspect drives SUV into the ocean

A suspected drunken driver almost hit several people in the Imperial Beach coastline in San Diego on Sunday, before he drove his car into the ocean.

The driver, identified as 50-year-old Jorge Mosti, drove his car off the road about 6:30 pm, according to KTLA.

He drove about a mile along the beach, nearly hitting several people on the beach, before the car came to a stop after being partially submerged.

I knew it was a good day to hit up the beach 😂 , looks like a stolen car & the guy ran plus he almost ran over me & Manuel when he came into the beach 🙄
