Posted: Monday, October 22, 2001

FAIRBANKS -- A Fairbanks man is accused of ramming seven vehicles during a drunken rampage in a stolen pickup truck.

Daniel Horace, 20, is in custody facing numerous charges from the Saturday night spree. The charges are seven counts of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and two counts of third-degree assault as well as drunken driving and driving with a suspended license.

Fairbanks police said they began receiving calls about the stolen truck shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday.

"Witnesses were saying that someone driving a pickup was ramming or running it into other vehicles that were parked in that area," Sgt. Ron Bowers told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. "He was driving recklessly, striking other cars that were parked."

Police caught up with the truck when it crashed into a small sedan. Horace reportedly had slight cuts to his hand, likely from the broken glass. Police do not know whether the vehicles were intentionally rammed or not, Bowers said.
