LAWTON, Okla._ A man driving in the wrong direction down a busy Lawton street crashed into a city trash truck Friday afternoon.
Police arrested the driver who they believed to be under the influence. Keith Block, Lawton, was given a field sobriety test, but he refused to cooperate with police when asked to give a breath test.
Block, 48, was driving north in his gray Ford Expedition in the southbound lane on 11th St. near C Ave.
The driver of the trash truck saw the SUV coming in the wrong direction from a distance so he put his truck in park and exited the vehicle. The SUV, however, continued to drive forward before crashing and wedging himself between a light pole and the trash truck.
The truck driver did not suffer any injuries.
