INDIANAPOLIS - A suspected drunken driver is in jail after barreling a car into six other vehicles - including a police squad car - overnight on the east side of Indianapolis.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, the driver was headed east on 11th Street near North Emerson Avenue (see map below) when the car began hitting parked cars along 11th.
As the car crossed east on Emerson, police said it hit a northbound IMPD vehicle with an officer and his K-9 inside. Those two were OK when checked out by medics.
After the car hit the IMPD vehicle, it continued on before smashing into another parked car, coming to a rest.
A grand total of six parked cars were hit, police said.
IMPD said the driver was taken away by ambulance with minor injuries, but was arrested.
