Driver Charged with Operating Under the Influence

Yarmouth Police responded Wednesday night to a report of a multiple motor vehicle accident on Route 28 and Bliscott Avenue in South Yarmouth.

Arriving officers found a black pick-up truck had crashed into a large sign at the corner of Seaview Avenue and Route 28.

The driver of the truck, 62 year old Francis Caruso of Dennis, was found behind the wheel conscious and alert, but police immediately smelled a strong odor of alcohol and observed Caruso’s blood shot and glassy eyes and slurred speech.

After field sobriety tests Caruso was arrested and charged with OUI liquor, operating negligently so as to endanger and a marked lanes violation.

Caruso’s truck struck several other vehicles before crashing.

No injuries were reported and Yarmouth Police are continuing their investigation into the accident.
