SALT LAKE CITY — A man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence following a rollover crash on Thursday night, authorities say.

The accident occurred on westbound state Route 201 near 4000 West when a Utah Department of Transportation incident management truck was struck. No one was seriously injured, KSL reported.

According to the affidavit, witnesses at the scene stated that "a red mustang was driving recklessly and caused the crash."

A trooper responding to the scene said he smelled alcohol as he spoke with the Mustang's driver, Keigan Matthew Sumsion, 25, who admitted to "having a few drinks that night," according to court documents.

Sumsion was given a field sobriety test, and the trooper determined Sumsion he was not in a proper state of mind to operate a motor vehicle. Sumsion was then arrested on the scene on suspicion of driving under the influence, reckless driving and having an open container/drinking alcohol in a vehicle.

According to the affidavit, a judge approved a warrant and two vials of blood were drawn from Sumsion before he was transported to the Salt Lake County Jail.
