Police: Drunk driver going so fast, he flips parked car over

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A drunk driver left a block of damage in his wake.

Police say he hit multiple parked cars along the 2300 block of Carmel Drive and was going so fast he flipped one of the vehicles over.

"The white truck behind us ... travels about 25 feet and does roll completely over, to give you kind of an idea of the speed [the drunk driver] was going," said Sgt. Troy Bauer with the Colorado Springs Police Department.

And he wasn't done. After smashing into the parked vehicles, police say the driver crashed himself and tried to make a run for it. It didn't take long for officers to catch up to him and arrest him.

The driver is facing charges for DUI, reckless driving, and driving with an expired license.

The driver has not been identified.
