Drunken Driver Hits 4 Cars In 1 Driveway - Self-Made Electric Car Totaled In Crash

Prairie Village police said a drunken driver crashed into a taxi and then hit all four cars that were parked in one man's driveway.

According to police, Dorothy Moore, 26, was speeding down the wrong lanes of 75th Street early Sunday morning before she hit a taxi, lost control of her vehicle and then crashed into all four cars parked in Brian Najonechy's driveway.

Police said that although Moore crashed at nearly 60 mph, she walked away without a scratch. The police report said her blood-alcohol content was 2.5 times over the legal limit.

Najonechy wants the mess cleaned up and his cars fixed, but said he is frustrated because Moore's insurance hasn't yet contacted him.

One of the cars totaled in the crash was an electric car Najonechy said he built himself.

According to Najonechy, he spent more than 200 hours building the one-of-a-kind electric car that cost him two cents a mile to drive, could reach speeds of 70 mph, and was worth about $19,000.

Najonechy said he is lucky, however, that Moore did not crash into his home. If she had, the vehicle would have crashed into the bedroom where he, his wife and two children were sleeping.
