Caldwell man charged with DUI after rollover crash in E. Oregon

A 25-year-old Caldwell man faces several charges, including driving under the influence, after he was involved in a rollover crash Tuesday night in Grant County, Ore.

Travis Lake was treated by emergency medical technicians at the scene, but he refused transport to the hospital.

Oregon State Police were dispatched to a report of a single-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 26, just east of Dayville, at 7:33 p.m.

Responding officers found a 1997 Chevy Blazer that had rolled and come to rest on its top on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of the highway.

Investigators say Lake was traveling west on the highway when the vehicle left the road, traveled onto the shoulder of the westbound lane, then came back across both lanes and rolled on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes.

The driver, identified later as Lake, showed signs of impairment, state police report. He was arrested for driving under the influence. At the Grant County jail, Lake was cited for DUI, reckless driving and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

Oregon State Police were assisted by the Grant County Sheriff’s Office and Blue Mountain emergency medical workers.
