(TERRE HAUTE) - A Terre Haute man is behind bars, and another in the hospital, after an accident Wednesday night.

Travis Napier is being charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated resulting in serious bodily injury and possession of a controlled substance.

Police say that around 10 p.m. Napier was driving north on Lafayette when he crossed the south lane and went over the curb, striking pedestrian Benjamin Stanton.

Stanton was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and is in critical condition.

Officials say Napier did fail a field sobriety test.

He is being held at the Vigo County Jail, and will appear in court again on Monday.
