SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the driver of an Amazon delivery van was arrested on suspicion of DUI after two hit-and-run crashes that knocked down a light pole and smashed up a parked car in a Southern California neighborhood.

Simi Valley police responded Thursday to reports of a city light pole down across a residential sidewalk.

Officers investigated reports that the pole was struck by an Amazon van that left the area. A short time later the van returned to the neighborhood, hit a parked car and again left the scene.

Officers spotted the van nearby and arrested the driver, a 23-year-old Woodland Hills resident.
