The driver of a vehicle that recently crashed his vehicle into a cookie factory in Tulsa has been charged with several offenses.
Police said Jorge Ruvalcaba's truck plowed into the side of Nonni's Food Business, in the 3900 block of E. Pine St. on June 30, the Tulsa Police Department said.
When officers responded to the crash around 8:10 p.m., they found a Chevrolet pickup truck turned over on its side after hitting the building. Through investigation officers learned Ruvalcaba was possibly street racing when he lost control of the truck, hit a curb and crashed into Nonni's.
The crash left a large hole in the side of the building. Witnesses at a fireworks stand across the street saw the incidnet and tried to help, but Ruvalcaba fled the scene on foot, police said, before being caught in the 1600 block of N. Knoxville Avenue.
Police said Ruvalcaba showed multiple signs of intoxication, and a breathalyzer test showed he had a 0.23 blood alcohol level. He was taken to a hospital then booked into the Tulsa County Jail for aggravated DUI, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, driving without a license, speeding, carrying no insurance and destroying private property more than $2,500.
