A man was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence after he crashed his German sports car into a collection of palm trees Thursday night in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood of San Diego.

The crash was reported in the 8700 block of Plaza Square at 9:30 p.m., in the eastbound lanes of Spectrum Center Boulevard where a man driving a silver BMW lost control and crashed into five palm trees.

The 30-year-old man was reportedly on his way home from a local bar which was just a scant half mile from the scene of the accident.

Upon arriving at the scene, police officers administered a field sobriety test to the driver, which he promptly failed. He was then arrested and faces felony DUI charges.

The driver and a female passenger in the back seat were uninjured in the scrape, though a male passenger in the front seat had his foot pinned as a result of a collapsed front portion of the car. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, but the injury is reportedly not serious.

The BMW itself faired much worse, however, as much of the front portion of the vehicle was splintered and collapsed. The force of repeated impacts with the coastal grown trees all but totaled the vehicle, which will cost many thousands of dollars to repair.

When the drinks start flowing at the bar, it is essential to designate a driver who can safely bring you home. Even a harmless trip back home from the bar can become a dangerous accident.

The occupants of the BMW were lucky that their vehicle crashed into a palm tree, and not another oncoming vehicle. Driving while intoxicated not only puts you in danger, but also other drivers on the road around you.
