NORTH DELTA — A suspected drunk driver left a wake of destruction in his path Sunday evening in North Delta, but fortunately no one was seriously injured.
Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow, of the Delta Police, said a red Dodge caravan swerved into oncoming traffic in the 11400-block of 80th Avenue, sideswiping a car and causing minor damage. This was at about 6 p.m.
"He did not stop," Swallow said. Witnesses called police and followed the van to 74th Avenue and 112th Street, where it smashed into several parked cars and caught fire.
"Miraculously, he was the only person injured," Swallow noted.
The driver's injuries were minor, she said.
"He was arrested for impaired driving."
No charges have been laid yet. The driver's name and age have not been released.
