A Maplewood man faces criminal charges after police said a crash that injured passengers in his car occurred because he was driving under the influence of alcohol.
Adam Wimberley, 38, of the 7300 block of Myrtle Avenue in , was charged with second-degree assault, operating a vehicle while intoxicated resulting in injury.
said Wimberley was driving July 9 in the 3400 block of Greenwood Boulevard and was going too fast for the road conditions and had to slam on the brakes for a stop sign. Police said his pickup truck skidded through the stop sign, struck an embankment and was stopped by railroad tracks.
Both front-seat passengers were injured. One man had a facial fracture, a vertebra fracture and cuts to his face. A second man had a bump and cuts on his head.
Police said Wimberley’s blood-alcohol content measured at 0.164 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
Bond was set at $7,500.
