Hewitt Officers responded to the crash in the 200 block of West Warren Road and determined that a white 2011 Nissan Altima 4 door which had been traveling eastbound on West Warren had left the roadway and struck a tree. Hewitt Officers were able to determine the 25 year old victim in the vehicle/pedestrian crash had been a passenger from this vehicle who was attempting to return to his residence. Hewitt officers arrested Jason Paul Scott, a 30 year old white male and driver of the Nissan, for the Misdemeanor offense of Driving While Intoxicated after he was treated and released for minor injuries.
At approximately 7:41am while Hewitt officers were investigating the first two crashes a third vehicle crash occurred at Hewitt Drive and Warren Road.
