(MITCHELL) - A Mitchell man was arrested for driving a vehicle while intoxicated after he crashed his 2009 Chevrolet Traverse on Meridian Road Saturday afternoon.

According to a Lawrence County Police report, 52-year-old Sean Hawk was traveling north on Meridian Road when a deer ran into the roadway.

Hawk told police he drove off the east side of the road to avoid hitting the deer and hit a utility pole and then the vehicle traveled back northwest across the roadway and hit a ditch causing the vehicle to flip. The vehicle landed up-right on the west side of the road facing west.

Hawk was given a blood-alcohol test at the hospital and tested .17 percent.

He was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
