Suspected DUI Driver Plows Through Fullerton Circle K

A man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he crashed his truck late Tuesday into a Circle K in Fullerton.

The crash was reported at 11:45 p.m. in the 900 block of North Placentia Avenue, according to Fullerton police.

The driver of the pickup, later identified as 19-year-old Eduardo Sanchez of Placentia, tried to park but never stopped.

Sanchez managed to remove himself from the truck after it crashed into the convenience store, which was open at the time. The front glass windows of the store were completely damaged, but the owners were able to reopen the store a few hours later. 

Although the owners now face several thousand dollars in repairs, they were thankful that no customers were inside when the crash occurred. 

Fullerton police said Sanchez was booked and later released.
