FDL Woman Injured Man Arrested In Drunken Driving Accident

A 57-year-old Fond du Lac woman was injured and a 44-year-old Tigerton man arrested for driving drunk and causing an accident after a two-car collision on the Johnson Street Highway 41 overpass in Fond du Lac Wednesday night. Assistant Police Chief Steve Klein says an off-duty Sheriff’s detective saw a vehicle flee the scene and gave police a license plate number and the direction of travel the striking vehicle took. The man driving the vehicle was seen pulling into the parking lot of the Kwik Trip at Johnson Street and Rolling Meadows Drive and taking off on foot behind the building. The man was urinating behind the building and took off running when an officer approached him. After a short foot chase he was arrested. He was bleeding from the head and had blood on both arms. He’s facing his second drunken driving charge, OWI causing injury, hit and run causing injury, and obstruction charges. The woman was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with unknown injuries.
