A suspected drunk driver was arrested on Friday night after he lost control of his vehicle as he drove on East Lincoln Avenue, in Orange, and then proceeded to crash into nine parked cars before he drove back onto the road and hit a Toyota Prius that was passing by.

The suspected DUI driver, a 32-year-old man, was trapped in his car for a while after the crashes and had to be rescued by firefighters. He was however then arrested and taken into custody.

The alleged DUI driver was not badly injured in the incident.

The Orange Police are investigating the incident.

The average cost of a DUI in California ranges from $10 to 12K. The suspect will however also likely be facing several auto liability claims and could also be sued by the occupants of the Toyota Prius.

DUI drivers, if convicted, also lose their driving privileges.
