SPRING CREEK– A Spring Creek man was arrested for driving under the influence after an accident caused his vehicle to flip over into someone’s front yard.
Michael Smith, 21, was arrested when Elko County Sheriff’s deputies found him inside of the vehicle that was flipped onto its roof around midnight Wednesday morning at 711 Palace Parkway in Spring Creek.
The cause of the accident is unknown and appeared to be a single-car incident with no injuries or property damage noted.
Elko County Undersheriff Ron Supp said Smith was lucky to avoid serious injuries while also not doing any notable damage to anyone else’s property.
“A lot of those places around there don’t have fences or anything so he might have lucked out except for getting arrested,” he said.
