SACRAMENTO COUNTY (CBS13) — Authorities have arrested the driver who crashed into a fire station then ran off early Wednesday morning.
The incident happened a little before 4 a.m. along the 3800 block of Watt Avenue.
A Sacramento Metro Fire Department station was struck by a car. Exactly what led up to the crash is unclear, but California Highway Patrol says the driver got out and ran.
Officers say the car also hit a power pole just before it ran into the fire station.
The driver – now identified as 28-year-old Andrew Jones – was later found in a nearby motel and arrested, officers say. Jones is facing charges of hit-and-run and DUI.
No one inside the station was hurt.
Lanes of Watt Avenue near the fire station are still closed due to the investigation.
