A flurry of reckless driving by a motorist Thursday morning in Arden Arcade led to a crash into an auto dealership and the driver’s eventual arrest.
A Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department deputy noticed the driver of a Ford sport-utility vehicle at about 10 a.m. heading the wrong way on Auburn Boulevard.
The deputy , driving an unmarked Crown Victoria sheriff’s vehicle, flipped a U-turn to catch up with the SUV, which was making unsafe lane changes.
The SUV turned onto Fulton Avenue, also driving the wrong way. The speeding SUV turned onto Edison Avenue, where the driver lost control, crashing through a fence of an auto dealership and into parked cars.
