The driver of the Yukon, identified as 26-year-old Jeffrey Dallas Pearson of Santa Rosa, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision police said.

According to police, Pearson was the subject of another investigation involving a collision that occurred at 9:20 p.m. Monday.

In that incident, Pearson allegedly lost control of his 2014 Ford Focus and crashed into the Village Pets & Supply store at 4213 Montgomery Drive in Santa Rosa.

Pearson allegedly tried to walk away from the scene, but was detained by police. He allegedly told them that he smoked marijuana before driving, police said.

Police found evidence of possible alcohol consumption and of controlled substances in the Ford Focus, police said. Pearson was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and booked into the Sonoma County Jail.

There were no injuries to people or pets at the pet store, police said.

Police are investigating and asking anyone with information to contact Santa Rosa police Officer Meiger at (707) 543-3600.
