Nashville Man Charged After DUI

DUIs have long been a problem in Tennessee, but, according to the Century Council, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities are on a downward trend. They estimate that the number of DUI-related deaths has decreased by more than 50 percent in the state over the last decade. That said, there were still an estimated 315,000 people injured by drunk drivers in 2011.


News Channel 5 reports that a Nashville man has been arrested after he caused a car wreck while intoxicated. The wreck occurred late at night on the interstate. The drunk driver, Jose Miguel Castillo-Calles, was driving a Volkswagen Passat. He struck a motorcyclist whose motorcycle became entwined with the car. The vehicles swerved, hitting both guardrails. The motorcyclist was thrown

onto the shoulder of the road and killed.
