20-year-old charged with DUII after crashing into house, deputies say
PORTLAND, Ore. —
A 20-year-old is facing drunk driving charges after deputies say he crashed into a house in the Cedar Mill area.
No one was hurt in the crash.
The crash happened just before 4 a.m. Sunday at a home near the intersection of N.W. Woodrose and Walker drives.
Deputies say Carter Culleton, 20, of Portland, was driving his Jeep Grand Cherokee in the neighborhood when he hit a stop sign and crashed into the residence.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, his blood-alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit of .08 percent.
Culleton was charged with DUII and criminal mischief.
From sheriff’s deputies:
DUII enforcement is a priority for the sheriff's office. Our deputies arrest an average of 1,000 impaired drivers each year. DUII is a 100% preventable crime. The Washington County Sheriff's Office encourages the public to designate a driver when they consume substances that could impair their ability to drive. Other alternative forms of transportation, such as taxis or app-based Uber or Lyft, are readily available in the metro area.
