A driver suspected of drunk driving was arrested last night after crashing into nine cars. According to San Diego police, the first collision occurred near Del Mar Heights and Mango. The driver continued driving, hitting six other cars, before a San Diego County Sheriff’s deputy was able to pull him over.
The man’s vehicle stopped for a moment, but suddenly took off southbound on Interstate 5, fleeing police. The driver continued until crashing into two more cars. Around the onramp from Carmel Valley, police were able to stop the man once again, and called in for backup. The driver has been charged with DUI, resisting arrest, and evasion. Fortunately, only minor injuries were reported in the accident.
