Crash driver had suspended license
A suspected drunken driver who crashed his pickup into a Grand Junction home early Sunday, damaging three vehicles at the residence, was driving with a suspended license because of a previous alcohol-related driving offense, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Alan G. Reeves, 20, of Grand Junction, was booked early Sunday into Mesa County Jail on suspicion of DUI, underage possession of alcohol, driving under restraint and reckless driving.
Reeves, who was treated and released at St. Mary’s Hospital, was the driver of the Ford pickup, which went out of control and crashed through a fence, knocked over a basketball goal and slammed into a pickup parked at 3155 Sharptail St. around 1:30 a.m., Trooper Matt Jakopic said. The impact pushed the parked truck through a garage door and damaged two other vehicles in the driveway, Jakopic said.
Reeves was cooperative and submitted to a blood-alcohol chemical test at St. Mary’s, the results of which won’t be known for several weeks, the trooper said.
Troopers found a bottle of whiskey in the rear of Reeves’ pickup, Jakopic said.
Two passengers in Reeves’ pickup also were injured, although their conditions weren’t confirmed Sunday.
