The impact of the crash forced the Mendez vehicle to crash into the front deck on the north east corner of the intersection.
Cory Berger was taken to Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth for a chemical test. He was then booked into the Marshall County Jail for Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance.
