Those Pesky Roundabouts Claim Another DUI “Victim”
Kennewick police say very early Wednesday morning, an intoxicated driver failed to negotiate another of those 'tricky' roundabouts, wrecked their truck, and strolled away.
Police say this Dodge driven by 29-year-old Tyler Jenson of Oregon, was driving through the roundabout at 19th and Union Streets in Kennewick when he lost control.
He tore up the suspension, including the left front tire, and was unable to continue. He apparently abandoned the truck, police found it empty after getting the call from citizens about the wreck.
However, Jenson was arrested for DUI after he was found shortly afterwards walking along Highway 395. He was formally charged with driving while intoxicated.
