A Porsche was reportedly launched from the French Valley Airport runway near Murrieta late Sunday, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol.
Temecula Area CHP Spokesperson Nathan Baer said that at about 11:05 p.m. Sunday, a tan 2012 Porsche Cayman allegedly "raced northbound up the runway, at speeds estimated at more than 100 mph."
During the "unusual occurrence," Baer said the Porsche, which is registered to a Temecula man, did not stop at the end of the runway.
"...Rather it launched off of the embankment," Baer said.
"The Porsche...grazed the top of the airport fence and landed in the number one eastbound lane of Auld Road...(It) continued traveling in a northerly direction across Auld Road and came to rest in a field."
Upon CHP officers' arrival at the crash site, Baer said the driver was nowhere to be found.
"The wife of the registered owner claimed that she did not know where her husband was. Investigating officers were unable to locate the registered owner after the collision and the registered owner has not contacted the CHP."
