DUFF — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Pike County man this morning after he overturned his pickup truck near Duff.
Bradley Neuhoff, 25, of 1819 S. State Road 257, Velpen, was northbound on County Road 650W in a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado when the 10:20 a.m. crash occurred a mile north of State Road 64.
Deputies said Neuhoff’s truck ran partially off the right side of the road, the driver over-corrected and the truck left the right side of the road and overturned.
Neuhoff was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospitalfor treatment of several cuts and scrapes, including a large cut to his left arm, according to police.
Evidence at the scene and Neuhoff’s condition led deputies to believe the motorist was intoxicated. Police said Neuhoff refused tests so deputies sought and were granted a warrant to draw his blood.
Neuhoff refused to cooperate with the warrant so, after he was treated, deputies booked him into the Dubois County Security Center on Class D felony counts of drunken driving and obstruction of justice, plus misdemeanor counts of possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana and chemical test refusal. The impaired driving charge was a felony because of a prior conviction within the last five years.
Police said the crash totaled the truck and caused significant damage to an all-terrain vehicle Neuhoff had been hauling.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and several witnesses who stopped to help before deputies and emergency medical technicians arrived assisted.
