ST. ANTHONY — A weekend rollover crash west of St. Anthony resulted in a motorist being arrested and accused of impaired driving.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department responded to the report of a car inverted between Bretzville and St. Anthony along State Road 64 at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Deputies arriving at the scene on State Road 64 west of Club Road found Adam Buchta, 25, 5757 N. 750W, Jasper, standing against his inverted 1998 Plymouth Neon off the south side of the highway.
After an investigation, deputies reported that Buchta’s Neon had been westbound on the highway when he apparently fell asleep behind the wheel. The Plymouth ran off the south side of the highway into a ditch, rolling onto its top. It stopped facing south.
Buchta suffered a small cut to his head and was treated on the scene by Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services. Police said he declined to be transported by ambulance for further treatment.
While on the scene, deputies alleged, Buchta showed signs of intoxication. After several field sobriety tests, he was transported to the Huntingburg Police Station for a certified chemical breath test that placed his blood alcohol content at .083 percent, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities booked Buchta into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:57 a.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated. He posted bond later in the morning.
The St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker also assisted.
