SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake police have arrested the driver of sport-utility vehicle for investigation of DUI after he allegedly hit a 7-Eleven clerk, throwing him through the storefront glass.

Danuald Ezar Williams, 39, was booked early Wednesday morning into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of DUI with injury and negligent operation of a vehicle causing bodily injury.

Williams was driving a white SUV when pulled into 7-Eleven, 1285 N. Redwood Rd., around 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to Salt Lake Police Lt. Dave Cracroft. The vehicle jumped the curb and hit a store clerk who was standing outside, sending the man through the glass, Cracroft said.

The clerk was taken to a hospital but is expected to recover from the injuries he suffered. Several customers were inside the store at the time, but no one else was injured.

The crash caused thousands of dollars of damage to the store, police said.

Officers reviewed surveillance video from the store and determined that Williams was the driver of the SUV, according to a jail report. Williams had a blood-alcohol content of 0.097, the report states. The legal limit for impairment in Utah is 0.08.
