Timothy Hill was driving his Volkswagen Jetta westbound in a parking lot between a Wal-Mart and an Ashley Furniture store when he struck the vehicle and planter, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

When it struck the curbed planter, Hill’s vehicle became stuck, Sheriff’s Sgt. Patrick Carroll said.

Police responded to the area and arrested Hill because alcohol appeared to be a factor in the crash, according to Carroll.

Hill did not sustain any injuries in the crash and was booked at Riverside County Jail located in the City of Indio, Carroll said.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Palm Desert Police Department’s Traffic Division at 760-836-1600.
