LODI - A driver is facing charges after he crashed his car through a fence and into a backyard, injuring a Lodi man.

Police charged the 47-year-old driver with reckless driving and DWI after he drove through a fence and ran over Greg Ceballos.

The car narrowly missed two other people playing in the backyard, including a child.

Police didn't say where the driver was coming from.

He was given a field sobriety test and a Breathalyzer on scene and was arrested.

Police say more charges may be filed against the driver, including assault by vehicle, as the investigation continues.

A close family friend says Ceballos is doing fine. He suffered a fractured back and is expected to be released from Hackensack University Medical Center soon.
