The Corolla pulled onto the shoulder; a 2003 GMC Sierra heading south on I-69 veered over the fog line, sideswiped the Corolla and continued without stopping.
The driver of the Corolla called 911 and followed the Sierra for more than 50 miles, police said, going through Daviess, Pike and Gibson counties. A state trooper stopped the truck on I-69 near Lynch Road in Vanderburgh County.
The Sierra was missing its passenger side mirror; the Corolla had damage to the driver’s side and was also missing its driver’s side mirror.
The driver of the Sierra, identified as 58-year-old Andrew Lamble of Kokomo, displayed signs of impairment and failed field sobriety tests, police said.
After having a blood draw, Lamble was medically cleared and taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail. He was arrested on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
