Last night – The driver of this vehicle hit a concrete barrier on South I-5 @ S 56th St., rolled it, was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries, AND got arrested for DUI. Again – this ended up being more dangerous and expensive than catching a ride .. #MakeGoodChoices pic.twitter.com/6n3AcMJw7u
