Infiniti Impaled by Saguaro Cactus, Driver Walks Away Unharmed

Saguaro cactus impales car in Arizona crash

An Arizona man suspected of driving drunk landed in custody after driving his auto into a massive cactus, impaling the windshield of his vehicle.

A driver ended up in a prickly predicament - but largely unhurt - after a collision with a cactus on Wednesday morning, July 10.

The driver, Kai Scott, 39, was charged for criminal damage and driving under the influence, KVOA reported.

Pima County sheriff's deputy Daniel Jelineo said the black sports auto struck the saguaro cactus in the accident on the outskirts of Tucson before ending up on the wrong side of the road.

The driver only suffered minor injuries, according to Deputy Jelineo.

Jelineo said deputies detained the driver for further investigation after observing signs and symptoms of impairment. She says one such plant can weigh about 2 tons when mature, which, added to the speed the Infiniti was traveling at, makes for a very powerful impact. "That was so bad", Figueroa adds.
