Sparks police say an alleged drunken driver caused an accident that shut down a portion of Sparks Blvd. and Greg Street Friday afternoon.

Police say around 1pm a driver turning onto Greg from Sparks hit one vehicle, which then caused several other vehicles and a semi-truck to be hit.

Witnesses say the unidentified driver then ran away into some bushes near the Truckee River, where officers say he eventually was arrested.

Charges are pending against him.

Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt in the accident. The driver was treated by on scene REMSA personnel for injuries he suffered when he jumped into the bushes.
