Drunk Driver Strikes Several Cars In Mt. Washington
MOUNT WASHINGTON (KDKA) – Neighbors along Natchez Street in Mount Washington said they were awakened by a series of crashes last night. It is believed a drunk driver hit up to seven cars while driving down the street.
It was just before midnight in the 400-block of Natchez Street when someone crashed into a SUV and sideswiped another car before hitting a white vehicle.
“Apparently she started further up the street and she hit one or two cars, and I don’t know if she panicked or what,” said neighbor Sam Palumbia.
The suspected drunk driver then slammed into Anthony Moreno’s van and car that were parked in front of his house in the 500-block.
“I heard a big crash and I said, ‘Man, it sounds like the house shook,’” said Moreno.
The impact took out Moreno’s fence and pushed his car over the hillside.
“Both of the vehicles are totaled,” said Moreno. “The Dodge went over the hill and the van was in front of it.”
The female driver was taken to the hospital by paramedics. She will likely face a number of charges. Meanwhile, Moreno says he hopes she has good insurance.
