Racine Co. sheriff: 2 in custody following drunk driving incidents in Yorkville

YORKVILLE — Two men were taken into custody for drunk driving in the Village of Yorkville early Saturday, Nov. 2.

According to officials, the Racine County Communications Center received a 911 call for a crash on Durand Avenue near 59th Drive around 2 a.m.

Upon arrival, deputies saw a large debris field and a silver pickup truck with heavy damage in the ditch approximately 100 feet from where the car struck a telephone pole.

The pole was severely damaged and knocked over, with wires across the road.

Both occupants were still inside the vehicle and said they were not injured.

The driver, a 46-year-old man, refused field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test revealed a result of .245. The man was subsequently taken into custody for operating while under the influence, first offense, and failure to maintain control of a vehicle

While deputies were still on scene investigating the crash, a black vehicle drove past the scene, nearly striking a deputy. A traffic stop was initiated and the operator, a 52-year-old Cudahy man, was taken into custody after completing standardized field sobriety tests. He was arrested for operating while under the influence, first offense, and failure to move over/slow down for emergency vehicles.
