An Ohio man is in the hospital after being ejected from his vehicle following a drunk driving crash that ended with his car partly inside of an Ohio State Highway Patrol post.
According to the Highway Patrol, the incident occurred at approximately 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night when the driver, 24-year-old Dakota Clouse, lost control of vehicle.
“The vehicle overcorrected and traveled off the left side of the roadway and across the lawn of the Sandusky patrol post,” according to the report. “The vehicle continued into the landscape area before striking a large concrete sign and crashing into the front of the patrol post.”
“The patrol post incurred damage to the walls and windows of the conference room in addition to the landscaping and concrete sign,” the report stated. “The conference room (the area where his car crashed into) was not occupied at the time of the crash, however, the conference room had been occupied an hour prior to the crash for a public meeting.”
Clouse is being charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, driving under suspension, failure to control a motor vehicle and a seat belt violation. Clouse had a prior drunken driving conviction in September and an outstanding felony warrant though the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, according to the Sandusky Register.
