STATESBORO, Ga (WSAV) — The Statesboro Police Department is investigating after a car crashed into the Centennial Place Dorms on the Georgia Southern University campus.

The driver was later identified as Landun Brock, 21, of Commerce, Ga.
Brock was treated for minor injuries at the East Georgi Regional Medical Center and later released into the custody of officers. He is now at the Bulloch County Jail and has been charged with DUI (less safe), Reckless Driving, Possession of Marijuana (misdemeanor), Giving False Information to Law Enforcement, Failure to Maintain Lane, Driving without a Valid License, and Adult Seatbelt violation.
