Five people, two of whom were in critical condition, were sent to area hospitals, when a drunk, unlicensed driver careened into multiple cars in Oklahoma City on September 19th, KFOR.com reports. Police officers say the man slammed into multiple cars on NW 23rd street near Portland Ave., but instead of stopping, he kept driving and crashed into two more vehicles on NW 23rd and Drexel driving at a speed of approximately 60mph.
