NOBLESVILLE, Ind. - Police said a Fishers man is facing OWI charges after he crashed his car at a retention pond early Thursday morning.
The Noblesville Police Department (NPD) said just after midnight, police responded to a single-vehicle crash in the area of Cumberland Road and North Point Boulevard.
Witnesses and evidence confirmed the car, a Jeep, was headed south on Cumberland when it left the roadway and hit a curb, a sign, a utility box and a fence. It then came to rest at the edge of a nearby retention pond. Both the driver in the passenger escaped the car, police said.
Investigators said the driver, Matt H. Rider, 32, of Fishers, was treated and released by medics at the scene before being taken to the Hamilton County Jail on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
The passenger, a 34-year-old Fishers woman, was taken to Riverview Health Hospital in Noblesville before being taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. She reportedly had non-life-threatening injuries.
