Sleeping driver crashes into south Fargo strip mall

FARGO — A Moorhead man crashed his car into a Fargo strip mall Friday morning after falling asleep at the wheel, police said.

Ethan Patrick Winter, 21, crashed into the strip mall across from Essentia Hospital on 32nd Avenue South around 7 a.m., Fargo police Lt. Joel Vettel said.

Police tested Winter and found he wasn’t under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. They cited him for reckless driving and driving after his license had been revoked.

The car crashed into an empty part of the strip mall that isn’t currently being rented out, Vettel said.

Winter was not seriously injured in the crash, which Vettel said caused more than $1,000 in damage to the strip mall. He was arrested and booked in Cass County jail.
