Heading into Sunday afternoon, the highway patrol was reporting four arrests over the weekend in the lake area…all four alcohol-related and with alcohol being a likely factor contributing to an injury accident on Bagnell Dam Boulevard near Union Electric Road.
The accident happened shortly before 12:30 this (Sunday) morning when a pick-up driven by 28-year-old William Wolf, of Russellville, was travelling at a high rate of speed, crossed over the center a couple times before leaving the road, travelling through a ditch, going airborne after striking a guardrail, colliding with several curbs and then striking another ditch.
Wolf and two passengers suffered minor injuries and were treated at Lake Regional.
Wolf also now faces pending charges of DWI-physical injury, careless and imprudent driving involving an accident, no vehicle registration and not having insurance.
