According to Sgt. Brian McGregor, spokesperson for the Kenner Police Department Friday evening, a DUI driver was tottering down a Kenner road injuring a woman who was trying to evade his vehicle. The police identified the culprit as Henry Hutchison, age 55 and resident of Kenner. He was trying to flee from the police after hitting several vehicles and a stop sign. But he was finally apprehended when he crashed backward into a tree.
The wreckage took place at around 5:15 o’clock Friday afternoon near the corner of Salem and 27th Streets. Hutchinson was operating an F-150 Ford pickup truck going eastbound. According to Sgt. Brian McGregor, spokesperson for the Kenner Police Department, a vehicle park before a residence. Due to the sudden stop, Hutchinson swerved his Ford pickup off the road and lost control of his vehicle. The truck continued running onto the sidewalk, crashed into a stop sign, then went across the street right to the opposite side of the roadway.
Hutchinson then slammed into a car parked along a driveway. The impact was so strong that the car flew and landed into a house and another vehicle.
The 55-year-old woman who sought safety in the second vehicle was pinned by the car to the wooden fence. She sustained serious injuries, including a bruised hip and immense pain on her head.
Police said that the reckless driver placed his truck in reverse to escape the police. But as his truck was speeding backwards, it crashed into a tree. The crash stopped Hutchinson who was apprehended by the police. He was very apologetic but police saw that he was in a high state of intoxication. His eyes were bloodshot and his speech was slurred. He admitted that he was drinking wine and several cans of Bud Light beer.
Investigators took samples of his blood for alcohol testing but result will come later.
Henry Hutchinson, who is a resident of 2618 Fayette St. in Kenner, was arrested for charges of DWI, causing negligent vehicular injuring, hit and run, driving recklessly, driving without license & insurance and having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle. His bond was for the amount of $7,800.
