The Caribou Police Dispatch received a complaint of an intoxicated driver on High Street traveling on the wrong side of the road at a very high rate of speed early Monday morning.
Officer Douglas Bell was in the area and observed a tan four-door car traveling on the wrong side of the road at a very high rate of speed.
The driver turned north onto the Van Buren Road from Bennett Drive still in the wrong lane of travel going way over the posted speed limit.
The vehicle entered the roundabout intersection and struck a light pole and utility pole and came to rest in the ditch in the trees.
