An Ocean View man is facing DUI charges after he ran his pickup truck into a ditch and then showed up at the door of a nearby homeowner who did not know him, according to authorities. The homeowner called the police, who came out to the home and determined that the man was drunk.
Police say the incident began at around 5:00 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 23 when the driver of a Ford pickup truck with a flatbed trailer in tow ran off the road on Route 113 near Shingle Landing Road. Following the crash, the 31-year old driver, reportedly the only person in the truck, went to a house on Shingle Landing Road and began knocking on the door. The homeowner called police, and Maryland State Troopers responded.
