HUNTINGBURG — Police arrested the driver in a single-vehicle crash early Friday evening on a county road just north of Huntingburg.
Nick M. Kreilein, 38, of 244 S. Truman Road, Jasper, was southbound on Old Huntingburg Road in a 2002 Ford Taurus when the 6:06 p.m. accident occurred 500 feet north of Phoenix Drive, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Police said Kreilein was driving too fast for surface conditions when his car ran off the west side of the road, struck a ditch and flipped.
Kreilein declined transport from the scene by ambulance, according to police who said he was impaired at the time of the crash with a blood alcohol content of .15 percent.
Police arrested Kreilein for drunken driving and booked him into the county security center at 9:30 p.m.
Damage was estimated to have exceeded $5,000.
Huntingburg’s police and fire departments, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
