Cactus slices through car windshield in crash


A Tucson driver got into a prickly situation Wednesday morning after striking a saguaro in the Catalina Foothills area, causing it to crash through the car’s windshield, officials say.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, officials responded to the area of North First Avenue and East Orange Grove Road for a single-vehicle crash.

According to Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Deputy Daniel Jelineo, someone called 911 to report that a car went through the median and struck a cactus.

The driver, Kai Scott, 39, sustained minor injuries, Jelineo said. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and for criminal damage.
