Driver Suspected of DUI After Crashing Into Several Cars on Banker’s Hill

In the state of California, those convicted of DUI would not only face fines, penalties, and court costs of more than $13,000 but are likely to have a suspended or revoked license for up to a year. 

CBS Affiliate KGTV reports that may be what is awaiting a man who was arrested after he crashed into several parked vehicles on a residential street in the Banker’s Hill neighborhood.

A spokesperson for the San Diego Police Department said that the collision happened at approximately 12:20 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8, in the 200 block of West Grape Street when a driver lost control of his Mercedes Benz sedan and crashed into a row of parked vehicles. The force of the impact caused the Mercedes to roll over onto its roof. The other involved vehicles were heavily damaged. 

The driver was able to extricate himself from his overturned vehicle through the window of a passenger-side door.

San Diego Police officers responding to the scene administered several field sobriety tests to the driver. He was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

So far, authorities have withheld the name of the suspect driver.
