ARCATA- A Eureka man allegedly driving under the influence was the reason for three accidents along highway 101 on Tuesday night. The alleged driver side swiped a car in Arcata before crashing into a telephone pole that knocked down power lines, causing another accident.

Eureka driver, Allan Tyson Kaimana Lemi, was found by CHP hiding in bushes after the accident around 9 p.m. Tuesday night. Lemi was arrested for misdemeanor DUI and hit and run.

CHP Information Officer, Matt Harvey, said Lemi was driving a 1986 pick up truck southbound through Arcata when he allegedly side swiped another car in the opposite lane. Five miles down the highway, just north of Indianola Cutoff, Lima allegedly ran into a telephone pole which caused power lines to fall and a driver of a Chevy truck to run into them.
