A man was arrested for allegedly driving while under the influence of alcohol at the scene of a collision in Hanover Park Avenue yesterday.

One of the drivers was found to be three times over the legal limit. He was arrested for drunk driving.

Bystanders then told the officers that the suspect was hiding a firearm in his cubby-hole.

Officers searched it and found a Toris .45 caliber firearm with one live round of ammunition.
