Two homes in the 200 block of S. Chelton were damaged by a suspected drunk driver Saturday evening.

A Toyota truck allegedly drive by Jorge Lopez, 18, crashed into the garage of a home at 202 S. Chelton, causing extensive damage. The Toyota continued on to strike a car parked in the driveway of the house next door at 208 S. Chelton before coming to rest on its left side.

Debris from the collision with the garage caused damage to the home next door.

Lopez was arrested for Careless Driving, DUI and Vehicular Assault.

A 17-year old passenger was treated at a local hospital for a suspected broken arm and a second passenger was treated and released for minor injuries.

No one was injured in either home.
