A 41-year-old man was arrested Sunday night after a head-on crash in Delaware County. The Muncie Police Department says the accident took place around 11:45 p.m., and it caused injuries for two people.
The individual suspected of operating while intoxicated and causing the wreck was Shannon W. Tompkins. The Albany resident was driving a Honda Accord that was headed south through the crossing of Madison Street and Memorial Drive. At the same time, an SUV was going north on Madison Street, and the two vehicles crashed when the SUV began a left turn onto Memorial Drive.
The driver of the SUV is identified as Andrew J. Beard, 34, of Anderson. He was driving a Jeep Cherokee, and the impact with the head-on impact with the Accord caused him to have pain in his face.
Mr. Tompkins suffered an abrasion to his arm, and he was cited for operating while intoxicated and endangering.
