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.
