FELLSMERE – On Saturday at approximately 5:00 PM, the Fellsmere Police Department responded to a report of a crash with injuries near the vicinity of N. Willow Street and New York Avenue.

Officers met with Timothy Young, 60, of Jensen Beach, who traveled west through the intersection without stopping. He then crashed his 2017 Ford Escape into a Cadillac Hearse that was traveling south.

The crash was witnessed by a motorist traveling behind the Hearse and a bicyclist traveling east on New York Avenue. Both drivers were transported to the hospital for their injuries. The driver of the Hearse was released after observation and treatment.

Young was interviewed at the hospital once he was released from medical care. He admitted to consuming alcohol from 1:00 to 4:00 PM and was driving in the area because he was looking for I-95.

His speech was slurred, and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. He refused to perform field sobriety tests when asked and was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and causing a crash with property damage and injuries.

Young was transported to the Indian River County Jail without incident.
