Police: Driver Admits Having Six Beers Before Crash

Police arrest a driver in a head-on collision that shut down one of Danville's busiest roads.

Police say the man was driving his truck the wrong way down the U.S.150 Bypass, when he hit another car at the intersection of Skywatch Drive.

According to police, 28-year old Ibanez Gonzalez-Batolo admitted he had drank six beers before the crash.

He blew a .16 in a breath alcohol test, which is twice the legal limit in Kentucky.

Batolo is charged with D.U.I.

The driver of the other car, 49-year old Tamatha Blum, had to go to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.
