Police say Wisconsin driver crashes not once but twice


November 29, 2015

LAKE HALLIE - Police say a Wisconsin driver had a difficult night when he crashed his car not once but twice.

A news outlet reports that Lake Hallie police responded early Friday to a two-vehicle crash on Highway 29. They found one vehicle in the median and a white Chevrolet Cavalier blocking the eastbound lane. An officer parking his squad car saw the Cavalier drive into the median, emerge from the ditch and head west.

The officer pursued. About a half mile away, police say, the Cavalier, traveling at high speed with no working lights, rolled into the median. Nobody was hurt. Police say the 23-year-old Gilman man told officers he'd consumed five or six beers.

He was jailed on suspicion of drunken driving, attempting to flee police and reckless driving.
