EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Dispatch says crews responded to a crash on the Lloyd Expressway, near Barker Avenue, Saturday around 10:35 p.m.

Officers say they saw a truck in two pieces with the cab having separated from the bed, blocking the eastbound lanes of the expressway.

According to the affidavit, it was the only vehicle involved.

Officers say as they approached the scene, they saw cans of beer and various tools spread across the roadway.

Officers also say the driver of the car told them he had a few beers.

That driver was later identified as Kalen Tyler Fuchs.

Fuchs also told officers he had been traveling in the center lane going eastbound when he lost control while changing lanes, and hit the guard rail.

However, officials say the guard rail on the westbound side of the expressway was splayed open, and scratches in the concrete on the eastbound lanes lead to Fuchs’ truck.

Officials also say Fuchs said that it was already like that and he did not ramp the guard rail.

After speaking with officers, Fuchs was asked to perform sobriety tests.

Officials say Fuchs was arrested and transported to Vanderburgh County Correctional Center.

He has been released.
