A Town of Dover man was arrested Saturday for his 5th OWI after authorities say he crashed his SVU. 

Officials received a call at around 12:20 p.m. of a single-vehicle accident on STH 11/Durand Ave. east of STH 83/Burlington Bypass. 

According to the caller, a vehicle was driving recklessly and left the roadway and struck a tree. 

The 43-year-old man ran into the woods following the crash but was arrested by Racine County Sheriff’s deputies and treated for minor injuries at a local hospital. 

He faces possible charges of OWI 5th offense, operating without a license, and several other traffic citations.
