The investigation continues, but Kennewick Police say the driver was believed to be impaired.

What Happened That Led to Crash?

Police didn't say the exact time, but were called to the intersection of North Yelm and West Clearwater late Monday night.

Upon arrival, they found a black Dodge Nitro had veered across into oncoming traffic, then slammed into a parked Mazda. The impact was hard enough it shoved the Mazda out into the road.

The suspect driver was not named, but Police say after their preliminary investigation, the person was arrested for DUI.

No word if any injuries, or extent of damage done, but reinforces (again!) why you NEVER get behind the wheel if you are in no shape to drive.

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.
