2 patrol units struck; man arrested for DUI
TOLEDO — An Oregon man was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday after his vehicle struck two stopped Oregon patrol cruisers on Starr Avenue, according to a crash report.
Reginald Jordan, 36, was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence. He was injured but was not transported to a medical facility, according to the police report.
A passenger in his vehicle, Tracy McKenzie, 36, of Oregon, was taken to Mercy Health St. Charles Hospital, police said. No officers were injured. Two patrol cars were on a traffic stop with their emergency lights flashing in the 2400 block of Starr Avenue in Oregon about 5:35 p.m. Sunday.
Jordan was traveling west on Starr Avenue when he struck the rear fenders of both of the patrol units, according to the police report. He then over- corrected his steering, causing his vehicle to roll over on its top, police said. Jordan and McKenzie had to be pulled from the vehicle.
A breath test was given, and Jordan’s blood alcohol content registered 0.214 percent, according to the report. That is more than twice the level at which a driver is considered impaired.
Jordan, released on his own recognizance, is scheduled to be arraigned in Oregon Municipal Court on Friday.
