Driver charged with DUI after three crashes in minutes

Police say one driver is behind a handful of overnight crashes, including one that sent a driver to the hospital. It all happened around midnight in the Leestown Road area.

Police got a call of some shots being fired on Whiteberry Drive. After arriving, they discovered that the sound the homeowner heard was actually a car slamming into a mailbox. A neighbor told police they saw a red Chevy Blazer leaving the scene.

Officers heading to the area to search for that SUV, came upon a crash at Leestown and New Circle. A red Blazer t-boned a car coming off the exit ramp. The driver of that car was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening neck and chest injuries.

At that very same intersection, police noticed another car that had been side-swiped. That driver suffered minor injuries and did not have to go to the hospital.

Police say 29-year old Erick Revolorio is responsible for all three crashes. He's charged with driving under the influence, driving without a license, not having insurance and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident.

Leestown Road was shut down while crews worked to clean up the debris from the crashes. It has since re-opened.
