2 pa­trol units struck; man ar­rested for DUI

The Columbus Dispatch - - Metro&state -

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.
