Police say a drunk driver crashed into a road grader in Soldotna on Monday night.
The Soldotna Police Department, Central Emergency Services and Alaska State Troopers all responded to the single-vehicle accident.
A Jeep Cherokee collided with the road grader just before 5:40 p.m. on the Kenai Spur Highway near its intersection with East Corral Avenue, said Soldotna Police Chief Peter Mlynarik. The driver, 25-year-old Nicholas Tuttle from Kenai, was then arrested for driving while intoxicated and for refusal to cooperate in a breath sample, Mylnarik said.
Captain Reed Quinton with CES said one man was medically evaluated on the scene, but no one had to be brought to a hospital.
