Hutchinson Man Arrested After Crashing into Vehicles and Tree 09 Apr 14

A Hutchinson man was arrested for probable cause DUI after driving through a lawn, crashing into two vehicles in a driveway, and then hitting a tree in Hutchinson early Sunday morning.

26-year-old Exiquio Raul Lopez has been charged with one count of criminal vehicular operation resulting in substantial bodily harm.

Authorities say they received a call of a suspicious vehicle near Golf Course Road and School Road just before 4am, where two men were walking away from a car.

The investigation revealed that the car was being driven at a high rate of speed on California Street, went into a yard in the 700 block and hit and totaled two vehicles in the driveway, hit a tree, and ultimately stopped in the middle of the road.

The passenger, a 27-year-old Hutchinson man, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash and was treated at the Hutchinson Health ER.
