Two cars collided about 6:30 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of South Main and Washington Street, and one of the vehicles then careened into a residence.
Police say a vehicle traveling east on Washington Street failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a vehicle going north on Main Street.
Both drivers suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital. Both were later released, but the driver that failed to stop for the stop sign was then arrested for driving while intoxicated.
No one in the residence was injured, Garrett said.
Police responded to 72 calls for service on Wednesday, and 13 people were arrested, Garrett said, including one for burglary of a residence. In all, he said, there were seven burglary reports during the day – three residence, one business, and three automobile.
Christopher Blaine Stafford, 20, of 1841 E. Cherry was arrested in connection with a burglary of a home nearby. Police had received a call complaining that someone had taken his television and PlayStation III.
A neighbor reported observing Stafford go into the residence and exit with the property. The investigating officer confronted Stafford and recovered the property, and Stafford was arrested for burglary of a residence, Garrett said.
A person living in the 500 block of Southeast 33rd Street complained of being burglarized twice in the same day. A woman said after reporting the first burglary, she re straightened everything up and left. Nine hours later, she said, she returned home and found someone had come inside and thrown things onto the living room floor. Both reports are under investigation.
A woman told police that a man attempted to rob her on Monday in the 1200 block of Lamar Avenue. She said the man entered her vehicle and asked her for a light for his cigarette. He then struck her in the face and attempted to take her wallet, she said. The man left on foot after a brief struggle, she told police.
