{{featured_button_text}}

Kenosha Police arrested a 26-year-old man after he crashed a vehicle into a tree in the 5000 block of 22nd Avenue on Tuesday night.

The incident occurred at 9:25 p.m. after officers spotted the vehicle near the intersection of 56th Street and 22nd Avenue. The vehicle was believed to have been involved in a gunfire incident in Lincoln Park on May 26, according to Lt. Matt Strelow of the Kenosha Police Department.

Analysts at Car Insurance Comparison have come up with a list of the states with the worst drivers. The study examined the number of fatal accidents in each state involving careless and drunk driving, speeding, and more. Despite having the smallest population of drivers in the U.S., Alaska was found to have the most dangerous drivers. Alaska was followed by New Mexico, Montana, Texas, Colorado, Nevada, Hawaii, and South Carolina. New Mexico was the worst state for careless driving, while Alaska was the worst for drunk driving. Utah was the state with the best drivers, followed by Iowa, New Jersey, Minnesota, and Maryland

Strelow said that when officers attempted to stop the vehicle, whose registered owner allegedly had a revoked license, the driver did not stop. The driver instead accelerated and drove away. Police terminated the pursuit, Strelow said, but the vehicle continued fleeing.

“Five blocks later, he lost control and struck a tree,” Strelow said.

The car crashed and the driver was captured, Strelow said.

Police are expected to recommended charges of operating after revocation and fleeing and eluding officers, among others possible offenses, according to Strelow. The incident remains under investigation.
