A drunk driver has been held responsible for a crash that happened at Tamiami Trail East in Naples.
Authorities confirm eight people were hospitalized after the crash. The eight people were injured after the man backed his car into a crowd. Report says he backed his Honda Accord through the parking lot of Mi Mercado Foods at 11375 Tamiami Trail East in Naples.

Deputies were able to locate him a half-mile away from the scene and he was arrested on several DUI charges and leaving the scene of an accident. The eight injured victims were taken to the hospital. Report says seven sustained minor injuries while one woman’s injuries were listed as serious.
