Driver who slammed into house charged with DWI

Jefferson, La. - State Police  have arrested a 25 year old Kenner man, charging him with DWI and careless operation after he slammed his car into a house on River Road.

The driver, who has been identified as Arnaldo Herrera, Jr. reportedly lost control of his car near the intersection of Shrewsbury, flipping the car and driving into a house.

State Police say neither Arnaldo nor anyone in the house was injured. The accident, which happened around 6 am Wednesday morning, shut down River Road from Causeway to Shrewsbury due to a natural gas leak.  The all-clear was given about 2 hours later, and River Road was open again to traffic.
