A 24-year-old Osawatomie man was arrested after he ran his car into a ditch late Tuesday near the intersection of Kansas Highway 10 and U.S. Highway 59, or Iowa Street.
Jonathan Michael Barbosa was charged with driving while intoxicated, having an open container and no proof of liability insurance, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Barbosa was traveling eastbound in a 2004 Honda and failed to merge onto the off ramp leading to U.S. 59, according to a sheriff’s department accident report.
The vehicle hit a reflector, overcorrected to the right, went into a skid, hit a post and then skidded down an embankment until it stopped in the ditch, the report said.
Barbosa initially declined medical treatment, but then was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.
