Dramatic surveillance video captured the moment two cars collided in Sacramento's Oak Park neighborhood early Wednesday morning, spinning out into a nearby house.

After the crash, neighbors say a fistfight took place in the middle of the street at San Carlos Way and 14th Avenue.

"I was woken up in bed by a really loud bang," witness Vinny Valenzuela, whose home surveillance camera captured the crash, told FOX40. "I looked out the blinds and I saw that ... multiple vehicles had actually crashed into the side of the house."

Soon after the wreck, witnesses say another car started making donuts in the middle of the intersection screaming for help.

Valenzuela ran out of his house to help the four people still inside the cars.

"There was a girl stuck in the car. I helped her out of the car and what ended up happening was there was a physical altercation in the middle of the street between the last vehicle that had arrived on the scene and the driver of the first vehicle, the vehicle that had actually blew the stop sign," Valenzuela said.

Sacramento police arrived and broke up the fight, according to Valenzuela, but the department says it’s only investigating the collision as the chase started in West Sacramento.

"And so West Sacramento responded to take over that portion of the investigation," Sacramento Police Officer Karl Chan said.

West Sacramento police confirmed they are investigating it as a domestic violence case, but wouldn’t give any details in order to protect the victim.

"The four were transported to local area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries," Chan said.

Meanwhile, neighbors say the man who lives in the house the cars crashed into was sleeping in a back room and unharmed.

Although police would not confirm it, neighbors say they were under the impression the car that ran the stop sign was being chased by the other car that showed up after the crash.
