A drunk driver escaped injuries when he careened into a block wall while trying to make a left turn.
The accident happened just before 2 a.m. on July 1 near Fred Waring Drive and Elkhorn Trail in Palm Desert, officials reported.
Deputies arrived at the scene and observed a heavily damaged 2008 Scion on the sidewalk.
As deputies talked with witnesses, a man approached them and informed them he was the driver of the Scion.
The man told officers he was attempting to navigate a turn when he hit the curb and a block wall, Sgt. Eichelt stated in a report.
Edgar Limon, 34, was determined to be intoxicated and was arrested and booked into the Riverside County Jail in Indio on charges of driving under the influence.
A road sign and a block wall were damaged in the accident.
