News: Suspected drunk driver arrested following Chesterfield crash

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Authorities say a man was driving under the influence when he got into an accident in Chesterfield Monday night, WRIC reports.

The driver crashed his pickup into a tree on Elkhardt Road just before 6:30 p.m.  He was not hurt but was “highly intoxicated,” according to Sgt. Rollins of the Chesterfield Police Department.

Rollins said a roadside test showed the driver’s blood alcohol level was .22, nearly three times the legal limit of .08.  The man, whose name was not released, was arrested and taken to a Chesterfield jail.
