A drunk driver steals a car and drives into everything but the kitchen sink.

It happened Sunday morning around 6:00 in the 5200 block of KY-56  in Daviess county.

Officials determined that 20-year-old Chad Winters left the road and hit a mailbox, gas meter and a tree - and then kept going, hitting a house, a pickup truck, a fence and another pickup truck before finally stopping.

We're told Winters tried to flee the scene, but he was found and arrested.

The registered owner of the vehicle Winters allegedly stole said he fell asleep around 4:00 Sunday morning; when we awoke, his car was gone.
He said he had no idea what had happened.
