A 55-year-old Racine man, who was still on probation for his fourth drunk driving charge, is facing his fifth drunk driving arrest after he sideswiped a car with the truck he was driving on Highway K near Highway V on Friday, according to Lt. Gary Larsen, of the Caledonia Police Department.

A Ford sedan was westbound on Highway K and the man was driving his Dodge truck westbound at 6:54 a.m. when he sideswiped the car in oncoming traffic. The rear driver-side mirror was smashed, and the driver’s side door and rear door was dented. However, no one was injured in the crash.

Geoff Wilde, of Caledonia, saw the crash.

“The driver at fault didn’t stop!” Wilde said. “The car he hit wasn’t damaged very bad, but it broke the driver’s side window; glass (was) everywhere, including in the passenger’s hair. I don’t know why the at fault person didn’t stop, but the 5-6 cars behind him hopefully got a plate.”

A witness followed the truck the man was driving and called 911. The 55-year-old man was arrested near Highway K and Highway 38, Larsen said.

The man was also arrested for hit and run, failure to wear a seatbelt, and failing to have an ignition interlock device. Charges are expected to be filed on Monday.
