This male driver's life just got a lot worse.

Kennewick Police responded to reports of an errant driver who slammed into a fence, took out some mailboxes, and hit two vehicles early Thursday morning.


The incidents occurred near Sheppard Place and West Kennewick Ave.

Police didn't say if the unidentified male was still in the car, but their information seemed to indicate after further investigation he was found nearby and pinpointed as the suspect driver.

He was transported to a nearby hospital for a blood draw to determine his impairment, and during that time he fought with officers. He must have also caused a ruckus at the hospital because one of the charges he is facing includes Interfering with A Healthcare Facility. Haven't heard that one before.

These pictures show some of the damage he caused in his spree, fortunately no one else was injured. The investigation continues.

Speaking of gas prices, he won't be needing any soon, because he's likely to have his license suspended.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
