A collision on Jefferson Road this (Saturday) evening sent one person to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.  Columbia Township Police Chief David Elwell comments “the at-fault driver was arrested for operating under the influence.”  To one passer-by who saw the aftermath of the collision, it appeared “the cars may have been traveling in opposite directions.”

The accident occurred on Jefferson between Lakeview West and Eagle Point Road.  The Jefferson Road westbound lane was closed until about 7:23 pm.  Prior to that, westbound traffic was rerouted north on Eagle Point, left onto Lakeview West and then back to Jefferson Road.
