Costa Mesa police arrested a man on suspicion of driving under the influence after his vehicle crashed into four parked vehicles on 20th Street before careening into a palm tree near Tustin Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. Monday.

Pablo Antonio Servin, 26, of Chino Hills faces at least one charge of DUI driving. It was still unclear Tuesday whether the suspect may face additional charges stemming from the damage sustained by the other vehicles involved in the incident.

Police spokeswoman Roxi Fyad confirmed Tuesday a call came in at 7:59 p.m. Monday regarding a vehicle rollover on the 300 block of East 20th Street. The incident took place near the city’s Woodland Park, adjacent to Woodland Elementary School.

Servin and a passenger were traveling on 20th Street when the vehicle they were in crashed into several other vehicles parked on a northbound curb, she said.

“The vehicle struck a city palm tree before coming to a rest,” Fyad added. “The driver of that vehicle was determined to be driving under the influence.”

Of the four vehicles struck, only one was occupied at the time. Servin and a passenger were able to extricate themselves from the vehicle after it reached a full stop, Fyad said. No injuries were sustained, according to a CMPD report of the incident.
