Intoxicated driver barrels through accident scene on closed road

MADISON (WKOW) -- A drunk driver ignored a "road closed" sign, and drove right through the scene of a crash.

Police say they were investigating a three-vehicle crash Thursday on 18/151 just before 3 p.m. and had shut down traffic.

That's when 53-year-old Jeffery Hefty, of Monticello, failed to stop his minivan, drove through the roadblock, ran over orange traffic cones and nearly hit a deputy.

Hefty eventually came to a stop when he was blocked by vehicles and debris from the accident.

He was arrested for his third OWI offense. Hefty received additional citations.

He was booked into the Dane County Jail for the OWI charge and a probation hold.
