RACINE COUNTY — A Kenosha man was arrested early Thursday after crashing into a semi and leaving the scene — one of three separate OWI arrests made by the Racine County Sheriff's Office in a six-hour period.
The hit-and-run crash occurred at approximately 2:10 a.m. Thursday, according to the Sheriff's Office. The Racine County Communications Center took a report of a vehicle that crashed into a semi on southbound I-94 at Highway 11 in the Village of Yorkville. The vehicle then fled the crash scene, losing a tire as it drove away.
The vehicle was later found at Highway E in Kenosha County driving on a sparking front driver’s side wheel rim. The driver, Drew Stanton, 23, of Kenosha, failed field sobriety tests. Charges of OWI, first, hit-and-run and reckless driving were referred to the Racine County District Attorney's Office. Stanton was also cited for other traffic citations and was held at the Racine County Jail on a 12-hour responsible party hold.
