Authorities say a 30-year-old man is facing aggravated DWI charges after he narrowly missed hitting two cars head-on, slammed into a utility pole — which severed in two, sparked a small fire and caused power outages— and barreled into a home in southwest Roswell, Thursday morning.

Police identified the driver as Steven Hernandez, and said he was flown to a Lubbock hospital after sustaining injuries, though the extent of injuries is unknown. Police say no other injuries were reported, and that no one was at the home on the 600 block of South Plaza Drive at the time of the crash.
