COLUMBIA — The driver of the vehicle that slammed into a garage at 1102 Vintage Drive on July 2 turned himself in to police Tuesday afternoon, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

Arthur Evans was arrested for driving while intoxicated, second offense and careless and imprudent driving. He had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit of .08 percent when his car crashed into the house, according to the release.

Evans sustained injuries from the accident and was taken to University Hospital, where he was treated and his blood alcohol results were taken by a medical records search warrant, according to the release. 

The crash occurred when Evans was unable to execute a turn next to the house and hit the garage of the house instead. The house had three people inside at the time of the accident, none of whom were injured.
