A man was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence, crashing into two people, leaving the scene, and crashing his car again.
Just after 7pm Saturday, July 9, officers responded to an accident on Don Tyson and Old Missouri in Springdale. Police say Kent Fisher made a U-turn in the middle of the road hitting another car. They say he drove away from the crash and wrecked his vehicle into a brick business sign.
On scene, Fisher’s police report says the victim was crying to officers complaining of numbness to her legs and cuts on her knees. Both driver and passenger were transported to Washington Regional Medical Center and their condition is not available.
Police say Fisher fled from the second crash on foot and resisted arrest from State Police. Law enforcement found pills that Fisher did not have prescriptions for.
Documents show Fisher was under the influence and blew a .20 on a breath test.
Kent Fisher is facing charges of DWI, careless prohibited driving, no insurance, and two counts of leaving the scene of injury accident. He is also facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and flight from officers. He has been released from the Washington County Jail.
