Man arrested on alleged DUI
Oct. 29, 2012 — After being involved in a single-vehicle accident, a 22-year-old Lake Almanor man was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), at 11:02 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 Austin G. Hardig was driving his 2001 Dodge pickup eastbound on county road A-21, west of Greenwood in the Westwood area.
The CHP said, possibly due to his alleged level of intoxication, Hardig allowed his vehicle to drift off the right roadway edge and onto the shoulder.
The vehicle struck a pine tree and rotated clockwise. Hardig sustained moderate injuries and refused medical aid at the scene. However, he was transported to Banner Lassen Medical Center for evaluation. After he was medically cleared, Hardig was booked into the Lassen County Jail.
The accident remains under investigation.
