PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police arrested a 28-year-old man early Thursday morning for allegedly crashing into a TriMet bus shelter while drunk.

While responding to an emergency call at 12:32 a.m., an officer saw a driver of a white truck driving eastbound at a high rate of speed down Southeast Powell Boulevard before he crashed into a TriMet bus shelter and concrete barrier.

The driver, identified as Andrew McLaughlin, along with a passenger got out of the truck and began to walk away from the scene.

Police said the officer stopped McLaughlin and determined he was impaired by alcohol.

McLaughlin was arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on several charges including DUII, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person, failure to perform the duties of a driver (hit and run) and two counts of second-degree criminal mischief.

The truck’s passenger was also intoxicated and taken to a sobering facility, police said.
