Pueblo drunk driver arrested after near-miss with pedestrians

PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A drunk driver barely missed hitting two pedestrians in Pueblo late Saturday night.

The pedestrians were on the traffic island at Highway 50 and Bonforte when they saw a car speeding towards them. Both jumped out of the way behind the traffic signal pole as the car missed the turn in the intersection and barreled over the island. A photo of the scene taken later by the Pueblo Police Department shows skid marks just feet away from where the pedestrians stood.

The driver fled the area but was located a short time later and arrested on DUI charges. His name has not been released at this time.
