Man faces several charges after one-car accident
Corey Davis, 43, of 74 Salisbury Road was arrested on June 29 on charges of two counts of risk of injury to a minor, driving while intoxicated, evading responsibility and failure to drive right.
At approximately 4:31 p.m., police received a call from a man who had witnessed a car accident in front of the United Methodist Church on the corner of Middlesex Road and High School Lane. A Chevrolet Suburban, according to the report, was driven around the corner at a high rate of speed and struck the stone wall in front of the church.
According to police, the complainant told officers that the driver of the SUV left the scene, so he followed. There was major front-end damage and the rear two tires had been severely damaged. The complainant then saw the SUV driver hit a telephone pole and mailbox, and followed him until the car stopped near Libby Lane, said police.
When officers arrived at the scene, they noted that the air bags had been deployed and the rear tires were shredded off the rims, which were badly damaged, said police.
Davis' 7- and 5-year-old children were in the car at the time, said police. The children's mother picked them up, according to police.
Davis was administered a field sobriety test, which he failed, said police.
He was released on $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court on July 8.
