Hit & Run Crash in Rochester Leads to Felony DUI Arrest
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man was arrested on felony DUI charges early today following a hit and run crash.
Rochester police Lieutenant Tom Faudskar says 28-year-old Cameron Wilks is accused of being intoxicated when the vehicle he was driving collided head-on with a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old Rochester woman. The crash was reported about 1 AM on the overpass at the 41st Street Northwest interchange on Highway 52.
The police report on the incident says no one was seriously injured and alleges Wilks drove away following the collision. He was followed by another motorist and was later pulled over by one of the responding police officers.
Lt. Faudskar says a preliminary test put his blood-alcohol-concentration above the legal limit, and because of the three previous DUI convictions on his criminal record, Wilkes was booked into the Olmsted County Jail on two felony DUI charges.
