SEATTLE — Police said a man was arrested in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood Monday after crashing his car into five vehicles and driving through the front doors of a business.

Around 9:30 p.m., several calls were made to 911 about a series of collisions involving the driver of a white Toyota sedan.

Police said the driver first hit a vehicle near Fourth Avenue and Cedar Street, and then hit vehicles at Broad Street and Denny Way as well as at Second Avenue and Battery Street.

The driver eventually came to a stop after crashing into the front doors of a business at Second Avenue and Denny Street.

Officers arrested the 51-year-old man, who investigators said appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, alcohol, and marijuana.

After taking him to Harborview for a blood draw, police booked him into the King County Jail for investigation of multiple counts of hit-and-run, DUI and operating a motor vehicle in a negligent manner.

Several drivers the man hit sustained minor injuries.
