Traffic Wreck Leads To DUI Charge

A January 15th court date has been set for a man who allegedly fled the scene of an accident after police arrived to investigate. According to the report by Officer Jeremy Lintz, the wreck occurred on North Dixie Avenue, but the driver -- identified as 18-year-old Justin Lynne Phann of Shipley Road -- allegedly drove away, dragging what was described as a "medium-sized tree." A short distance away, his vehicle became disabled and he was placed under arrest for DUI, among other charges. Meanwhile, police say a Celina woman was also charged with DUI after an officer observed her vehicle driving down the road without any headlights. 20-year-old Terra Rose Kimes allegedly failed several field sobriety tests after being pulled over on 18th Street.
