Paul F. Cherry, 63, of New Columbia Highway, will be served with warrants for driving under the influence (5th offence) and vehicular assault when he is released from a hospital, according to the report by Lewsiburg Police Officer Clint Newbill. About 7:45 p.m. June 11, Cherry was in a head-on collision at the intersection of Cornersville Highway and Yell Road. "Oh, I've done it now," Cherry said, according to Newbill, when he heard that people in the other vehicle had been injured.

Officer Terry Ebenstein witnessed the crash and stated, "The force of the head-on collision was so great that the rear ends of both vehicles lifted off the ground and almost formed a V-shape."

Cherry told Newbill he had drunk seven to 10 beers and said he "believed he passed out while driving."
