Man Crashes into Five Cars

BARTOW, Fla. (AP) _ A central Florida man has been arrested after authorities say he crashed his sport utility vehicle into five other cars, all in separate crashes.

Polk County Sheriff’s deputies received a call Monday that a green Kia was driving strangely and at one point travelling in the wrong direction on one road.

Forty-seven year-old Curtis Gunter was involved in the first crash around 2:45 p.m. The Orlando Sentinel (http://lb.vg/MOR94) reports he had additional crashes after that.

A deputy was about to put spiked sticks in the road to stop Gunter’s vehicle when the SUV hit his parked patrol car. Nobody was seriously injured.

Gunter was charged with leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and reckless driving. He was booked into the Polk County Jail.
