All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Delahunt investigated a vehicle vs. house, DWI crash last night on Pistol Circle.
Evidence at the scene showed that the black, Jeep SUV crossed the center line, exited the left side of the pavement, careened through a big ditch, sideswiped a tree, slammed into the front porch area of a trailer house and came to final rest where the porch used to be.
The driver, Douglass Gandy Jenkins, 42, was arrested at the scene, transported to the Garland County Detention Center and charged with DWI and Failure To Submit To Chemical test. Mr. Jenkins’s bond was set at $1,500.
Piney Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly with plenty of trucks and manpower. However, the call of “a car running through a house” turned out to be a lot less dramatic. The porch was taken out, the front door was busted out of it’s frame and the bottom trim of the house was damaged. PFD assisted as necessary.
LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene. No injuries were reported.
Traffic flow was not interrupted.
