Car driven into safety wires; man arrested

Police arrested a man who drove off of Interstate 65 and hit a set of safety wires early Sunday.

Derek R. White, 23, Indianapolis, was arrested on a charge of operating while intoxicated.

Police found White’s car, which was missing its hood, in the median near the I-65 Franklin exit about 12:45 a.m. Sunday. White told police he thought he was getting onto Interstate 465 and that there were three lanes. When White got onto the interstate, he went across two lanes of traffic, hit the road’s rumble strips and then struck the safety wires in the median, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.
