Jeffrey Howe was not injured in the crash, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Sergeant Eichelt. 

Eichelt said the crash was reported about 2:15 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Magnesia Falls Drive and Rutledge Way, just east of Portola Avenue.

Howe’s Scion xB reportedly ran into the parked pickup as it traveled westbound on Magnesia Falls Drive. No one else was in the Scion, according to Eichelt.

This guy totaled my work vehicle. It was my only way of getting to work to provide for my family of four. This guy had no remorse at all for his actions and was laughing throughout the process. He was uninsured as well leaving me and my family without any way of replacing our totaled vehicle bc progressive only paid off our loan leaving us with absolutely nothing. So thanks Jeffrey Howe! I hope that beer was worth ruining mine and my families life. I hope you rot in jail.
