Alleged drunk driver leaves mess behind in University Heights

UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, Ohio - An alleged drunk driver sideswiped a University Heights patrol car, right in front of the police station.

It happened Wednesday morning around 5 a.m. on Warrensville Center Road.

Officers said the woman was traveling northbound when she hit a parked vehicle, just north of Meadowbrook Boulevard. They said she veered over into the southbound lanes then knocked down two trees, hit the police cruiser and slammed into a business sign on Silsby Road.

Police told NewsChannel 5 the driver suffered minor injuries and will likely face charges.
