The pickup, a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 owned by Ryan J. Lee of Hillsboro, remained drivable with damage to its left rear and undercarriage. The collision propelled the truck into Lee’s front yard in the 200 block of S. Jefferson St.

Nye’s 2014 Chevrolet Impala, owned by Kent W. Nye of the same Valley Center address, sustained disabling damage to its right front and undercarriage. Its side airbags deployed, and the car was towed.

A woman who was in a building across the street witnessed portions of the crash, according to officer David Funk’s report.

Nye told Funk that his car’s windows and windshield had frosted or fogged over and that he was attempting to drive while seeing through a small clear patch in the windshield and an open driver’s side window.

He was ticketed on charges of inattentive driving and driving with obscured windows.
