KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Kalamazoo woman  has been arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving after crashing into an apartment house and damaging a gas line.

It happened around 1am at the corner of Rose Street and Vine Avenue.

KDPS tells us the suspected driver pulled into the driveway crashing into a meter, then left the vehicle and wandered away.

The crash sparked a brief evacuation after fears the gas shut off valve may have been damaged, but KDPS officers say it was intact and they were able to shut the gas off quickly.

Police say they located the driver a short time later. She is now facing charges of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.
