Police responded to a report of a vehicular crash on Conwell Ave. last Friday evening.
According to reports, a reckless driver had hit a parked car and then struck a house immediately thereafter.
Responding officers found a damaged vehicle pushed up onto the curb and noted visible tire tracks leading further up the street. Witness at the scene said that they saw the other vehicle head up the street, where it eventually crashed to a stop.
Police followed the tracks to a Conwell Ave. residence and found that the vehicle in question had apparently hit a house and then crashed through its cinder block carport, finally coming to a stop in the residence’s backyard.
The vehicle’s driver, Jason White, 30, appeared to be intoxicated, according to police, and had finished his wild ride by hitting his own house and crashing through its carport.
White was placed under arrest and charged with operation of a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene of property damage, and reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
