An 18-year-old Bridgeport man lost control of his car Tuesday on Wilson Street and crashed through a fence.
According to police, Haris Jadadic, of Merritt Street in Bridgeport, was traveling west on Wilson Street around 1:19 p.m. Tuesday when he lost control of his car on a curve, striking the curb at the end of a driveway at 422 Wilson St.
The car jumped the curb and crashed through a 5-foot-high white vinyl fence, and continued onto the lawn, tearing the undercarriage of the car, which then began leaking oil.
Jadadic then drove through 20 feet of chicken coop fencing and across 91 feet of lawn before driving back through the vinyl fence, according to the report. The car then sideswiped two trees and a utility pole.
He left the scene and was located by officers nearby on Buena Vista Road, police said.
Jadadic told police he lost control because he was driving too fast. He declined to be taken to the hospital.
He was charged with reckless driving, evading responsibility, failure to drive right, driving without a license and operating an unregistered motor vehicle. He was released after posting a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear Aug. 4 at state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
