A drunk driver crashed into five parked cars in the Best Auto Mart lot on Saw Mill Run Road early this morning and then ran before officers found him hiding on a hillside, Pittsburgh police said.
Ryan Peterson, 24, was driving south on Saw Mill Run about 12:09 a.m. in his grandmother's 1998 Subaru Legacy station wagon with a suspended license, police said.
After the crash between Edgewood and Whited Streets, he left the lot on foot and hid until police found him.
Officers said he smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes when he was found.
Police charged him with driving under the influence and careless driving among other crimes.
