[ISP] Semi Driver Arrested for OWI

Entry Description

New Castle – This morning at 9 a.m. State Police Sergeant Todd Wallace, assigned to the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, was driving east bound on Interstate 70 when he observed an eastbound semi speeding and following another semi too closely. Following too closely is one of the leading causes for crashes in Indiana.

Wallace stopped the 2003 Kenworth that was pulling a fully loaded box trailer, just west of the New Castle exit. Further investigation revealed the driver of that truck, Boris Carlos, age 51 of Rochester New York, was operating the 80,000 pound truck while intoxicated.

The truck and its cargo was impounded and Carlos was lodged in the Henry County Jail charged with Operating While Intoxicated, “A” Misdemeanor and Public Intoxication, Class “B” Misdemeanor. In addition Carlos received tickets for Following Too Closely and Speeding.

According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, in 2012, alcohol-impaired driving in Indiana was linked to 158 fatalities (a 12.9% increase from 140 fatalities in 2011) and more than 2,112 injuries. Alcohol-impaired collisions were less than 3 percent of all Indiana crashes, but accounted for 20.3% of Indiana’s 779 traffic fatalities in 2012.

This traffic stop is another unfortunate reminder that impaired drivers are not just a late night “phenomenon.” They can be found on the roadways anytime, day or night. The Indiana State Police remains committed to reducing the number of impaired driving crashes as well as all crashes.

Motorists are encouraged to report suspected impaired drivers by calling 911. Give a vehicle description, location, and direction of travel. Never follow an impaired driver.

All Suspects Are Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty in a Court of Law.
