Woodbridge man injured in DUI crash in Stafford
From the Stafford Sheriff’s Office:
A 34-year-old Woodbridge man is lucky to be alive after driving under the influence and crashing his vehicle.
On November 11th at approximately 2:44 a.m. Deputy X.D. Bates responded to the intersection of Garrisonville Road and Joyce Street for a single vehicle auto accident. It was advised a vehicle struck a fence and power pole. When Deputies arrived on scene, medical staff were providing lifesaving measures to the unconscious driver.
Within the vehicle was an open bottle of Heineken and a suspected controlled substance. It was also discovered the driver, who had a revoked license, was driving without a seat belt. When the driver awoke, he advised he was driving when all of a sudden “something” happened. He would later change his story numerous times.
Warrants for driving under the influence, driving while revoked, possession of controlled substances, failing to maintain the lane of travel, drinking while driving, failure to wear a seatbelt, obstruction of justice, and an expired inspection sticker were obtained. The driver was transported to the hospital due to his injuries, and has not yet been served on the warrants.
