PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say a suspected drunken driver has smashed into more than two dozen parked cars.

Police say witnesses saw the sport-utility vehicle in question hitting several cars and losing a front wheel, but continuing to drive away early Sunday. Police say the driver made it another 12 to 15 blocks before stopping.

Police did not immediately release the driver’s name but say criminal charges are pending.

One resident, John Fello, tells WTXF-TV the driver jumped out of the vehicle and tried to run away once his vehicle was disabled. But by then neighbors and police were able to chase him down.
