DETROIT (WJBK) -- Police say one driver turned his car into a one man wrecking crew Tuesday night.   It's unclear if he was under the influence, but he is under arrest.

Motorists at I-75 and Seven Mile were startled and quickly started calling 911 telling the authorities a driver was all over the place rolling erratically hauling down the highway.  Though not just speeding -- police tell us he was hitting, smashing, crashing and sideswiping cars along the way.

We're not exactly sure how many were smacked by the Cadillac, but two vehicles were hit bad enough to need a tow.

It was at the Chrysler service drive and Seven Mile where the Cadillac ended up slamming into the curb and came close to colliding into a pole.  Police tell us the driver was not hurt.

We're told the driver was taken to the hospital to undergoing some testing to see if he was under the influence, which is procedure.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
