BOISE -- A Utah man is under arrest for DUI after a wild series of crashes that included three vehicles, a mailbox, trash can, and a powerpole.
Just before 4 p.m., police say Marc Goodwin, 30, of Orem, Utah, was headed east on Boise Avenue when he crashed with a car waiting to turn north on Apple Street.
The witness told police that Goodwin stopped to exchange information then suddenly jumped back into his truck and quickly left the scene. He then rear-ended a minivan that was headed east on Boise Avenue. The man and woman inside the minivan were not hurt.
Police say Goodwin continued driving, ran a red light, and T-boned a Nissan Sentra, which was headed south on Apple Street.
The path of destruction did not end there. As he drove down Boise Avenue, police say Goodwin took out a mailbox and a trash can. He turned onto Law Avenue where he crashed into a powerpole. When police arrived on the scene, the skid marks from his wild ride were still visible along Boise Avenue and Law Avenue.
The 2005 Chevy came to rest in front of Helen B. Lowder Park, near Liberty Elementary School, where children were playing since school had just gotten out. Officers and witnesses on the scene say it is very fortunate nobody else was hurt in the crash.
Witnesses say it appeared Goodwin's head hit the windshield when he crashed into the powerpole. Police say his injuries appeared to be minor and he was alert and talking. He was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released. Goodwin was not wearing a seatbelt.
Because of the crash, more than 1,000 people in the neighborhood were without power. Idaho Power crews spent hours on the scene working to replace the power pole and repair the power lines Thursday night.
Investigators are looking in to why the man was driving so erratically. Goodwin is behind held in the Ada County Jail. He is charged with DUI and three counts of leaving the scene of an accident.
Police say he had two previouis DUI convictions in the state of California.
