A 28-year-old Shorewood man arrested for suspected OWI in Grafton Saturday evening after crashing his Mercedes into four other cars. 

The Ozaukee County Sheriff said the man didn’t stop for a red light at Port Washington and Pioneer Roads and hit four cars as it sped through the intersection. 

The driver was taken to Froedtert Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

A 34-year-old Grafton man was flown to Froedtert, but the sheriff’s office says those injuries are non-life threatening. 

Three people in another car struck in the accident were taken to a local hospital for cuts from shattered glass. They were a 52-year-old woman, a 53-year-old man and a 76-year-old woman from Glendale. 

A 63-year-old man from Cedarburg was also hit but did not suffer any injuries. 

The 28-year-old man was arrested for OWI and driving without a valid license. Charges have been forwarded to the Ozaukee County District Attorney's Office.
