Jacksboro-wreck
State trooper Gary Myers says alcohol was involved in a Monday afternoon crash on Jacksboro Road that has led to the third DUI arrest for the man behind the wheel.McMinnville resident Isreal Gutierrez is charged with third-offense DUI and second-offense driving on a revoked license.“He told me he had been drinking all day and had a beer in one hand as he was driving,” said Myers. “The passengers in the vehicle said he was driving fast and reckless. He couldn’t negotiate a curve, hit a utility pole, and flipped.”Myers said Gutierrez was traveling down Jacksboro Road toward Morrison when the accident occurred near the intersection of Old Shelbyville Road around 3:30 p.m.Despite the high-speed collision, the two passengers in the 2002 Ford Explorer four-door pickup were able to run away.
