Truck crashes through fence at Fairchild Air Base

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A pickup truck crashed through a chain-link perimeter fence Sunday night at Fairchild Air Force Base.

KXLY reports the driver continued on a perimeter road to a gate where the truck was surrounded by security forces.

Washington State Patrol troopers arrested the 22-year-old driver on suspicion of drunken driving and endangering a 14-year-old passenger who was injured in the crash.

KREM reports a 30-foot section of fence was being repaired Sunday night, and the breach had little impact on Fairchild operations.
