Police in Cottage Grove are using a dangerous, wrong-way crash Friday night as a reminder to not drink and drive and to always find a sober ride.
At 8:45 p.m. Friday, police say a man from Nebraska who is suspected of driving under the influence, when he went the wrong way on Keats Ave. and crashed into another vehicle head-on near 70th St.
The driver of the other vehicle is 34 weeks pregnant. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to an area hospital for care.
Washington County records show the 49-year-old Nebraska man was booked into jail just before 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Charges are pending an investigation.
"Please use this as a reminder to not drink and drive, and to spread the same message to those around you," police said.
