An impaired driver who fled from a dinnertime crash in Franklin on Tuesday is facing several charges.
Shortly before 6:30 p.m., Franklin police officers were summoned to a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 65 in Cool Springs. Officers located the fleeing driver, 40-year-old Donald Brewster, of Columbia, driving into a nearby parking lot after he exited the Interstate. His vehicle had heavy damage, including two flat tires.
Officers determined Brewster was impaired and arrested him. The driver of the car he slammed into from behind was shaken, but not noticeably injured.
Due in court on June 22, Brewster is free on the $5,500 bond set by the Magistrate. He was charged with DUI, violation of the implied consent law, drug possession, failure to provide proof of insurance, leaving the scene of a crash and failure to report a crash.
