CLINTON — Police said a man who admitted to huffing while driving caused substantial damage to several residences before driving his car into a house Thursday morning.
Anthony Dean Rogers, 36, of Clinton, was booked in Davis County Jail on several charges, including psycho-toxic chemical abuse and driving on a revoked driver’s license, Clinton Police Sgt. Todd Kelly said.
Kelly said Davis County Dispatch received numerous calls at 10:20 a.m., when the driver started his accident spree.
It began at 1199 W. 800 North, where Rogers, who was driving a 2006 Toyota Corolla east on 800 North left the road and hit a mailbox, Kelly said.
Rogers then “hit a light post, went through two fences and then hit a parked motor home before going into the garage side of the home at 1139 West,” Kelly said. “He caused a lot of damage.”
Of the emergency calls received, one came from a driver who was following Rogers, and the other came from the owner of the home the car crashed into, Kelly said.
No one was injured in the accident.
When officers arrived, they found Rogers walking west on 800 North away from the accident.
“The officers backtracked to where the car was and found a fresh can of Duster, still hissing,” Kelly said.
Rogers admitted to police he had been huffing while driving.
Clinton police closed 800 North for several hours while they investigated the accident. Homeowners who were not home at the time of the accident were notified of the damage to their property, Kelly said.
Sunset police and Davis County Sheriff’s deputies also helped with the investigation.
