HURRICANE — A 58-year-old Hurricane man was taken into custody Sunday by Hurricane City Police after driving on the wrong side of the road on a residential street, losing control of his car and destroying three utility boxes.
Just after 1 p.m., Hurricane City Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said, a man was driving on the wrong side of the road when he apparently lost control of his 2004 Cadillac and ran over three utility boxes — an electricity box, a cable box and a telephone box — at 877 N. 225 West in Hurricane.
The Hurricane Valley Fire Department responded to the incident to make sure there were no issues with utility outages. None were reported.
“After further investigation, they suspected that the driver was under the influence,” Buell said.
Tests were conducted, and the driver was arrested.
According to information from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Danny Miller, of Hurricane, was booked into jail for driving under the influence of prescription drugs, driving on a suspended license and improper lane travel. As this report is published, Miller is being held on $2,420 bail at the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
