A man from Warsaw, Indiana is out on bail after he allegedly left a woman who sustained personal injuries behind after driving his motorcycle into a ditch on June 18.
Police say that shortly after midnight on the morning of the crash, 37-year-old Pierceton, Indiana resident Mark Osbun was driving his 2001 Harley Davidson with 38-year-old Warsaw resident Michelle Kistler as his passenger.
Allegedly, Osbun drove his bike off the road and rolled over before coming to rest in a ditch. He allegedly fled the scene, leaving Kistler behind in the ditch. She suffered a fractured leg in the crash.
The call that a driver had fled the scene of a personal injury accident was received by Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Castillo. While on the same road the crash occurred on, he spotted Osbun on his motorcycle and pulled him over.
According to a report by Castillo, he noticed a strong odor of alcohol on Osbun. He allegedly told Castillo that he had been in an accident and had “about four beers about an hour prior to being stopped.” His blood-alcohol content tested at .13, over the legal limit of .08.
Osbun was charged with felony driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. The DWI charge was a felony due to a prior conviction.
