CARROLLTON (CBSDFW.COM) - A man in Carrollton was arrested and charged with DWI early Thursday morning, but his friend received an even higher charge. The incident started at about 2:15 a.m. when officers were told about a crash near the intersection of North Perry Road and East Belt Line Road.

Witnesses had called police about a driver who had hit several trees and ran away from the area on foot. As officers were going to that crash scene, it was reported that the suspected driver was then struck by another vehicle while he was standing in the roadway. The suspect was hit so hard that he slammed into that car’s windshield.

But the original driver got into this second vehicle and the two people left the area together. When authorities located the second vehicle, they found both drivers, and took both of them into custody.

The original driver was charged with DWI, and somehow managed to avoid serious injury despite his many alleged crashes with trees and the other vehicle. The acquaintance who picked him up, however, was charged with hindering apprehension — which is a higher class charge than the original driver’s DWI charge. The names of the two people have not been released.
