PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A wrong-way driver on State Route 51 was extremely intoxicated when he slammed into a wall Tuesday morning.

The driver suffered minor injuries in the crash near Glendale Avenue, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves.

Graves said it was fortunate no one was seriously injured.

Witnesses saw the car going north on SR 51 near Glendale Avenue before it crashed, Graves said.

The officers, including Phoenix police, closed off the area for a short while so they could tow the car and clear the scene.

No other information was immediately available.
