CHEYENNE – A pickup truck veered off the road, went up an incline and struck two apartment buildings early Sunday morning at 5445 Carter Road, near U.S. Highway 30 and Hayes Avenue.

According to a post on the Cheyenne Police Department’s Facebook page, the truck went through a fence, destroyed a small tree and crashed into two separate buildings before coming to a stop.

The driver, Austin E. Riekens, 28, of Pine Bluff Street in Cheyenne, suffered minor injuries. None of the residents inside of the apartments were hurt, police said in the social media post.

Riekens was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, careless driving and on a warrant for failure to appear, according to a Laramie County jail booking sheet.
