An Indiana man has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident, resisting arrest, and driving under the influence of drugs after ramming into five cars, including one driven by Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Springfield.
Marlin R. Knepp, 26, Loogootee, Ind., caused the accidents while driving along I-44, east of Marshfield and just west of Strafford, according to the Highway Patrol.
Burlison reported the incident on his Facebook page:
"Someone driving a black Chevy Avalanche just ran my car off the road on I-44. They are driving westbound. They raced to get to my car and then clipped the tail of my vehicle which sent me spinning into the guard rails (which saved my life). "
