TAMPA — A 24-year-old Tampa motorist hit a speed-limit sign, a chain-link fence and a house in Town 'N Country before his 2006 Nissan Pathfinder finally came to rest, deputies said.
The crash occurred about 9 p.m. Wednesday as Marcelino Gomez Gomez was driving on Paris Street West, a few blocks west of his home at 6017 W Burke St., according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
The Pathfinder stopped after it collided with the concrete wall of the house on the 6100 block of Yorkshire Road.
Gomez, whose occupation was listed as self-employed/kitchen, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and driving without a valid driver’s license. His blood alcohol level measured .233 and .231 in separate tests, almost three times the legal limit of .08.
Gomez was being held in jail in lieu of $1,250 bail.
