Alleged drunken driver crashes into Puyallup house

An alleged drunken driver was traveling more than 100 miles per hour when he lost control of his car and it crashed into a Puyallup home late Sunday, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

The accident happened just before midnight in the 3900 block of 152nd Street Court East. Deputies arrived to find a 2006 Saturn Ion smashed into the home and the driver trapped inside.

The driver, a 20-year-old man, was taken to an area hospital. He later was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The man allegedly told deputies he had a few beers at home and then got behind the wheel after an argument with his girlfriend.
