The accident happened shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sunday, in the alley between Sixth and Seventh Avenue Southeast, around the 1200 block.
Steven Cooper, 32, Wimbledon, N.D., was driving a 2012 Dodge when police tried to stop him for allegedly disobeying a flashing red signal and not signaling a right turn.
Cooper allegedly attempted to elude police by driving down Seventh Avenue at a high speed and through the alley. He pulled into a parking area behind a house on the 1200 block, struck a parked Dodge, a parked Ford and a wooden fence.
He fled on foot and was later arrested for DUI, police said.
There was an estimated $4,500 in damage to Cooper’s Dodge, and an estimated $1,000 each to the parked Dodge and Ford. Damage to the fence was estimated at $500.
Cooper was cited for DUI, failure to give immediate notice of crash, duty upon striking an unattended vehicle, and attempting to elude police in a motor vehicle.
