A 45 year old Smithville man escaped injury but was charged with driving under the influence Monday evening after a single vehicle truck accident at Dowelltown.

Tommy R. Duggin, Jr. of Deer Ridge Lane, Smithville is under a $1,500 bond and he will make a court appearance on October 1.

Trooper Brent Collier of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Duggin was driving a 2019 black Nissan Frontier when he went off the right side of a small bridge on Chapman Hollow Road around 5 p.m. Duggin’s truck was first spotted parked at a gate on a shared driveway of several property owners near Chapman Hollow Road. When one of the property owners went to investigate he found Duggin behind the wheel unconscious. After being awakened, Duggin drove away but as he tried to pull from the driveway onto Chapman Hollow Road, the truck dove off the right side of the bridge and the undercarriage got stuck on part of the bridge and embankment.

According to Trooper Collier, Duggin had a strong odor of alcohol, had trouble communicating, and he performed poorly on standardized field sobriety tasks.
