Highway 290 three car accident leads to arrest of driver’s boyfriend

A man was arrested for DWI last night after a three vehicle accident that he was not involved in. Around 10:45 p.m. Sunday on Highway 290 at N. Gessner a woman driving a sedan wasn’t paying attention when she crashed into the back of a car, pushing that car into a vehicle in front of it. Police say the woman’s boyfriend was following in a separate vehicle and he stopped after the accident. Police determined he was drunk and arrested him on suspicion of DWI. All main lanes of Highway 290 were closed for about 20 minutes as crews cleaned up the wreck. Channel 11’s story is here.
