Posted: Updated:

A Dubois County man is facing drunken driving charges after a weekend accident.

It happened just before 9:00 p.m. Sunday night on State Road 56.  

State police say 23-year-old Luke Kern was heading west when his truck went off the road, he overcorrected and it hit an earth embankment.

Troopers say Kern was not wearing his seatbelt and his head hit the windshield. He was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment and then to jail.  

Troopers say his blood alcohol level was .27. That's three times the legal limit.
