Wrong-way drunken driver hits speedometer trailer when trying to turn around, cops say
An alleged drunken driver traveling in the wrong direction on Highway J in Rock County early Sunday morning collided with a speedometer trailer owned by the Sheriff’s Office when he tried to turn around, the Sheriff’s Office reported.
Deputies found Omar Estrada-Escobar in his stalled van in the middle of the road at 2:30 a.m. Sunday. He said he had been at a party and was driving home when the direction didn’t seem right. He executed an unsuccessful turnaround, visiting a drainage ditch and then clipping the sheriff’s office trailer before stalling his van in the road, the Sheriff’s office reported.
Estrada-Escobar’s arrest for operating a vehicle while intoxicated is his third, deputies reported.
The speed trailer was towed to the sheriff’s office for repairs. Estimates of damage were not available and Estrada-Escobar was not injured.
