Vehicle Crashes Into Ventura Building: Driver Arrested On DUI Charge

Posted on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 11:02am

A Ventura County man is in a lot of trouble, after police say he smashed his vehicle into some offices while driving under the influence.

Ventura Police say the 24 year old Oxnard man was speeding westbound on Thompson Boulevard just after nine last night, when he swerved to avoid another vehicle, and lost control of it.

He crashed into an insurance office on the 2000 block of the boulevard.

The man escaped without serious injury, and there was no one in the offices at the time.

Ventura firefighters had to shore up the building, to keep parts of it from collapsing. Authorities haven’t identified the man, who was arrested on a DUI charge.
