Millcreek Police have charged a driver with DUI after he lost control of his car early Sunday morning, drove off upper Peach street and plunged into Walnut Creek near the Millcreek Mall. Kearsarge rescuers snapped this picture of the car in the creek just after 3:08 am Sunday.
Millcreek police say 22-year-old Lukas Barr of Waterford lost control in the 5600 block of Peach, hit two parked vehicles in the lot at Kearsarge Auto parts, leaving one of them teetering on the snowbank above the creek. His own car went over the snow bank and ended up vertical in the creek headlights up.
Emergency crews helped Barr to climb up out of the creek, where debris is still left behind. The totaled cars are now parked nearby at Romesburg Auto.
Barr escaped the accident without any serious injuries. Millcreek police arrested him on a charge of driving under the influence. He's expected to face traffic charges as well.
