Driver Arrested After Centerville Township Crash

By Beth Milligan | Aug. 8, 2018

A 26-year-old Traverse City man was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of drunk driving after crashing his car into another vehicle.

Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene of the two-car accident at the intersection of South Good Harbor Trail and West Eitzen Road just after midnight Sunday. Upon arrival, the deputies investigated the crash site and found one of the drivers intoxicated. An investigation determined a 25-year-old Lake Leelanau woman had been driving east on West Eitzen Road and stopped at the intersection at South Good Harbor Trail. While she was stopped, the Traverse City man attempted to turn right onto West Eitzen Road, but was traveling too fast to make the right-hand turn and struck the woman's vehicle.

The male driver appeared disoriented at the scene of the crash. After an investigation, deputies determined he was intoxicated and arrested the man. He was lodged in the Leelanau County Jail. Neither driver was injured in the accident.
