A drunk driver injured another motorist after crashing into three cars near Silverado Trail and Taylor Street on Wednesday night, police say.

The motorist was so intoxicated that he couldn't open his car door when officers tried to question him, according to Napa Police. After trying to coach him many times, officers decided to break the window out of his car, police said.

Jacob Diedrich Perlas, 39, of Napa was not responsive, police said. He eventually stepped out of his car and was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center to be cleared, police said.

He was booked into Napa County jail around 9:30 p.m. on suspicion of a felony charge of driving under the influence and causing injury, jail records show.
