No one was injured in a two-car head-on collision that happened at 8:40 p.m. Friday in the 2100 block of Ole Davidson Road.
Robert G. Woods, 18, of Racine, was cited for operating a motor vehicle the wrong way on a divided highway, open intoxicants in a motor vehicle by the driver, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, driving a motor vehicle with a prohibited alcohol concentration, and expired registration.
According to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department, officers were called to the scene of a two-car crash involving a 2002 Ford Mustang that was traveling southbound and a 2018 Dodge Ram pick-up truck. Woods, who was driving the Mustang, crossed the divided highway and crashed into the pick-up truck “in a head-on manner.”
Both of the vehicles had heavy front-end damage and the road was closed for about 45 minutes.
Noticing signs of impairment, officers administered a field sobriety test to Woods. Failing it, they arrested him.
