FORT MEADE, Fla., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a man who crashed his sport utility vehicle into other vehicles in five separate incidents on a single day.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said deputies received reports of a Kia Sorrento driving erratically Monday afternoon and the vehicle finally came to a stop when it struck a parked patrol car while a deputy was putting out a spike strip in an attempt to stop the motorist, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Deputies said the Kia struck five vehicles, including the patrol car, before it stopped. No serious injuries were reported.

Curtis Gunter, 47, of Fort Meade was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and reckless driving.
