Freemont Man Arrested Following Crash — DUI & Underage

A Fre­mont man has been arrested after police say he left the scene of an acci­dent which downed some power lines in LaGrange County west of Orland, which caused some power out­ages in the area. It hap­pened at the inter­sec­tion of 1100 East and 750 North, where deputies found a 2002 Pon­tiac over­turned. The dri­ver, 20-year-old Austin Willms, had left the acci­dent scene before offi­cers arrived. He was later found, and he returned to the acci­dent scene. Nobody was hurt, but Willms was locked up in the LaGrange County Jail on charges of Oper­at­ing a Motor Vehi­cle While Intox­i­cated, Minor in Pos­ses­sion of Alco­hol and Leav­ing the Scene. Willms was also cited for unrea­son­able speed due to the weather conditions.
