Deputies later found the driver, identified as Cortez, and questioned him about the crash. While speaking to Cortez, deputies detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and conducted a field sobriety test on which he performed poorly. A breathalyzer test showed him to have a blood alcohol content of .258g%. Cortez was booked with DWI (4th Offense), Hit and Run, and Careless Operation. He was also booked on an outstanding warrant for Domestic Abuse Battery. His bond is set at $51,100.
