Drunk Driver Barrels Vehicle Into Car Dealership Lot, Destruction Ensues
Thursday night a Walla Walla man found himself in jail for DUI, but also facing a TON of property damage fees that will likely occur. AND he's in the hospital with injuries.
Around 9pm Walla Walla Police reported 26-year-old Miguel Reyes was driving south on State Route 125 in Walla Walla when he lost control and struck the road barrier. His car then went through a fence and sped into the dealership lot at O'Brien Chevrolet-Nissan.
Reyes' car slammed into a row of brand new vehicles, destroying at least one Nissan and heavily damaging at least two others.
He and a female passenger riding with him both sustained injuries and were transported to St Mary's Medical Center. Their condition is not known.
Reyes was charged with DUI and will likely also face court action from the dealership.
