A Janesville man was arrested on a charge of fourth-offense intoxicated driving early Thursday morning after police said they found his vehicle overturned on Williams Street just north of Centerway.
Officers responded to a report of a traffic accident at Williams Street and Centerway at 12:15 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the police department.
Upon arrival, they found a vehicle resting on its roof on Williams Street. The sole occupant, Jeremiah K. Smith, 29, was standing outside the vehicle, according to the release.
An investigation revealed that Smith was driving west on Centerway when his vehicle left the road and struck a power pole as he approached Williams Street, according to the release.
After striking the pole, the vehicle continued through a yard and over an embankment, went airborne, flipped and landed in the yard of a Williams Street residence, according to the release.
Smith showed signs of intoxication, failed field sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of fourth-offense OWI, the release states.
He was taken to a local hospital and then transported to the Rock County Jail.
Smith also was cited for operating after revocation and failure to maintain control, according to the release.
