(Michigan City, IN) - Charges are filed in connection with a vehicle crashing into a fence in Michigan City.
Police said 44-year-old Reynaldo Sanchez was under the influence of methamphetamine on the night of October 15 when he crashed outside a home at 2010 Elston Street.
Upon arrival, officers found the still-running vehicle in the yard and Sanchez inside the vehicle unconscious. The SUV was in reverse, and the only thing that kept it from moving was the fence the vehicle was stuck on.
According to police, Sanchez exhibited significant impairment and had not been drinking, but he tested positive for methamphetamine. He also allegedly had some fentanyl in his possession.
The Michigan City man is charged with possession of a narcotic drug and operating while intoxicated.
