Man drank 36 beers before crash

The driver of a pick-up truck that crashed into a house in Utah admitted drinking 36 beers and doing cocaine, the authorities say.

A probable cause statement says Bernabe Urcino-Saldago told police what he had consumed after he failed a field sobriety test early yesterday.

The 39-year-old was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, negligent collision and driving without a licence.

No one was hurt in the early morning crash at a house on Salt Lake City's west side, near Rosewood Park.
