Man behind bars after accident caused by drunk driving


A man is behind bars accused of driving drunk and causing two wrecks, including a three car pile up.

Webb City P.D. responded to this wreck at Fountain and Main when the driver struck a vehicle stopped at a traffic signal there. That also pushed both into another vehicle also stopped at the intersection. The 57 year old driver was taken for treatment of his injuries, along with one of the other drivers.

A 9-1-1 call first alerted Webb City officers to the possible drunk driver just after two this afternoon. That driver fled police when they caught up with him 20 minutes later, leading to a pursuit and another, earlier crash when the pickup struck a vehicle near Fountain and Lakeview.
