Monday Night Bank Crash Investigated as DWI
Christopher Doty, 21, who was driving the late-model GMC pickup that crashed through Concho Educators Federal Credit Union Monday night, is being investigated as a possible DWI, police say.
Doty and his 19-year-old male passenger were traveling southwest on Loop 306 at around 8:50 p.m. yesterday when they veered off the road and ultimately crashed into the bank. Both were transported to the hospital, where they remain, however the extent of their injuries is unknown.
SAPD Public Information Officer Brian Robinson stated that due to the injuries at the scene of the crash, officers could not administer a field sobriety test. Instead, blood was drawn and sent off to a lab for testing. It could take up to two weeks before the results are in, he said.
The damage to the bank building was extensive, however the wall Doty crashed through was determined not to be a load-bearing wall by firemen on scene. Last night, construction engineers were examining blueprints to confirm that the building still has structural integrity.
