CAPE CORAL, Fla. --- Cape Coral Deputies have arrested a man in connection to driving under the influence and crashing into a garage. 

Deputies responded to a single crash vehicle on Eldorado Parkway where they found Jeffrey Simpson.

According to witnesses, Simpson had been speeding on Eldorado Parkway when he came to a dead end and was forced to turn into a driveway. 

Simpson hit a parked car and hit the victims home before crashing into the garage. 

Deputies say that the impact to the garage caused a large tool chest to fall onto an antique Corvette inside. 

Simpson attempted to leave the scene before someone hit his car. 

Further investigation determined Simpson was driving under the influence. He was arrested and transported to Lee County Jail after receiving medical attention.
