RURAL CLEAR LAKE – A possible drunk driver rolled his car while traveling north on Interstate 35 late Saturday night, and then fled as law enforcement searched for him.
The incident took place on Interstate 35 near the 184 mile marker northbound. The Cerro Gordo sheriff’s office says 36-year-old Luke Porisch of St. Ansgar was driving his 2000 Toyota 4-Runner when he lost control and rolled the vehicle several times. As law enforcement approached, Porisch fled eastbound on foot into a field. He was soon caught.
Porisch was taken by Mason City fire medics to Mercy Hospital with minor injuries. Mercy Air Med was also launched to the scene. An investigation is now underway into the accident, and law enforcement suspects alcohol was involved.
