A drunken driver was speeding on Milwaukee Street Wednesday around 2:16 a.m. when he lost control of the car, drove into oncoming traffic lanes and barreled into two parked vehicles, an incident report said.

Preston V. Billings, a 28-year-old Madison man, was arrested on suspicion of operating while intoxicated, fourth offense.

The crashed car ended up on a front lawn with significant damage. According to police, the driver's car was smoking and in the roadway. The front compartment of the car was pushed into the backseat.

Neighbors heard Billings yelling for help and pulled him out of a rear window.

The passersby cared for him until police arrived. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
