The collision caused a power outage in the area.

“Upon arrival police located a Porsche which had struck a power box knocking out power to the area,” said DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf. “The Porsche received fairly extensive damage as a result of the collision. There was no driver on site when police arrived.”

Leykauf said police contained the area and tracked the suspected driver to a nearby wooded area, with the assistance of a police dog.

She said the suspected driver was arrested for driving while impaired. The driver then blew into the approved screening device, and received a fail result, and was issued a 90-day immediate roadside orohibition. The Porsche will be impounded for 30 days.
