Midland wasn’t far behind, ranking No. 2 with 6.19.Sutliff & Stout, the law firm who published the study, compiled the list by pulling all data for alcohol involved crashes during the last five years for every Texas city with a population more than 50,000, averaging an average of fatalities during the last five years, dividing it by total population, with Odessa’s population estimated at 115,000, and dividing the number by 100,000.The Odessa Police Department stated in a news release Wednesday they are concerned about public safety on the roadways and have ramped up their DWI enforcement to try and lessen these numbers.The release added the best enforcement relied upon the citizens’ own safety and discipline and those visiting, and the number could be lowered by being smart after drinking an alcoholic beverage.OPD advised in the news release to always have a sober driver when going out and to not allow an intoxicated person to operate a motor vehicle. The release also stated OPD is available to assist should a person refuse to take a safe, sober ride home, and asked the public to call 9-1-1 to report intoxicated driver incidents.The release detailed that should anyone be at an establishment that appears to be over-serving customers, to report it immediately to the police.DWI ARRESTS MADE BY OPD DURING THE PAST FIVE YEARS:2013: 4622014: 5832015: 6642016: 6672017: 6662018: 187Average per year: 608.4The number of arrests in 2018 is ranging from Jan. 1 to March 31, the release detailed. OPD also reported the average number of crashes during the past five years as 86.2, and the average number of fatal crashes involving alcohol during the past five years at 6.4.Odessa District of TxDOT Spokesperson Gene Powell said TxDOT declined to comment on the study itself, but said they spend millions of dollars every year trying to combat drunken driving with various campaigns.“We encourage people to not drink and drive every chance we get,” Powell said. “Any drunk driving fatality is preventable and we hope people make the right choice behind the wheel.”See the study HERE.

Police use drone to find blind man who had been missing for 33 hours

Posted on by

first_imgakiyoko(ENFIELD, Conn.) — Police used a drone to locate a missing blind man in Connecticut who had become lost in a wooded area for over 30 hours.A family member of the blind man contacted the Enfield Police Department on Feb. 15, saying they were concerned as they were unable to make contact with him, police said in a statement posted to Facebook. The police statement does not name the individual.Officers determined that the man had not been seen since 10 a.m. the previous day. Based on their investigation and understanding of the missing man’s previous behavior, officers determined that it was likely that he had walked away from his home and become disoriented.Investigators were concerned that the low temperatures in the area put the missing man at risk of hypothermia and contacted colleagues in the Vernon Connecticut Police for assistance. A drone pilot from that force joined the search.The drone located the missing man in a wooded area after 30 minutes of searching. Video shot by the drone and released by authorities show first responders carrying a gurney.“If he wasn’t found today, you know, tomorrow might have been a different story,” Sgt. Todd Thiel of the Vernon Police Department, who piloted the drone, said in an interview with Fox 61 TV.“It’s similar to kind of looking for a needle in a haystack… I just happened to spot something” Thiel said of the search.The man told authorities who came to his aid that he had become disoriented due to medical conditions. He also said that he had been outside for approximately 33 hours and had endured chilly overnight temperatures of around 9 degrees Fahrenheit.Police said that he was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
