A driver traveling the wrong way down a one-way street in downtown Orlando who had to be cut out of his automobile after an accident may now face DUI charges, according to Orlando police. Police say the recent accident closed the intersection of Garland Avenue and Amelia Street for an hour after the man rolled his Toyota with such force that firefighters had to cut the roof off the car to extract the man and treat him for injuries. If blood tests indicate that the man was legally drunk at the time, the accident scene is especially ironic to Orlando police. The location was the site of a press conference earlier that day where they announced a campaign to step up enforcement of drivers driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Fortunately, no other people or vehicles were involved in the accident. The man was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
