Drunk driver gets stuck on Adrian bike trail

ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Part of a highly-traveled bike path in Adrian was closed Wednesday after someone tried to drive their car through it.

Officials say the driver responsible was under the influence and caused major damage to a bridge on the Kiwanis Trail. The trail was closed between Race and Maple Street.

Police say Christopher Carr tried to drive his truck on the bike bridge Monday night. After getting his truck stuck, police say Carr got out and walked away. They found him nearby and say a preliminary breath test showed his blood alcohol content to be more than twice the legal limit.

"With is state of mind, he could have driven into someone, or over someone, or into their house," said Police Chief Vince Emrick. "There's no telling what could have happened. His perception was that far off that he thought he was on the road."

City officials say they're still assessing the damage and that portion of the trial will remain closed until repairs are made.
