Apparent drunk driver flips vehicle


BARGERSVILLE, Ind.–A Johnson County man crashed his vehicle off of County Road 500N, near Bargersville on Monday afternoon. When the car came to rest it was inverted. The Johnson County Sheriff’s department says William Sorter, 53, of New Whiteland, was suspected of drunk driving due to his slurred speech and glossy eyes.

The suspect was treated for his injuries at Johnson Memorial Health, and while he was there Sorter reportedly agreed to a blood draw test. Sorter had also taken a preliminary breath test at the accident site, which deputies say showed a BrAC of 0.246 percent.

Upon his release from the hospital, Sorter was taken into custody and charged with operating while intoxicated.
