Injury crash brings OWI arrestOctober 7, 2019
From Local Sources
HOLLAND — A Huntingburg man was accused of impaired driving after police were called to an injury crash west of Holland early Sunday.
The 3:45 a.m. call sent the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office to County Road 850W, two miles south of Old Road 64 where a 1999 Ford F-150 was overturned on its passenger side in a creek bed south of the roadway. Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and the Holland Volunteer Fire Department also responded.
Authorities said one of four passengers was injured.
The sheriff’s office identified the driver as Eric A. Thacker, 22, 106 S. Cherry St., Huntingburg. Authorities allege Thacker failed field sobriety testing and a blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center indicated there was methamphetamine and amphetamine in his system. His blood alcohol content also tested .031%.
Authorities booked Thacker into the Dubois County Security Center at 6:31 a.m. on a preliminary Level 5 felony count of impaired driving causing serious bodily injury.
A KARS wrecker also assisted.
