A 21 year old North Carolina man rear ended a mobile alcohol testing lab last weekend while driving drunk in Newton, NC. Douglas Shane Southard was travelling approximately 45 MPH in his 1989 Chevrolet Camaro when he hit the mobile lab at 2:45am last Sunday.
Newton police had been operating the "Breath Alcohol Testing" lab in conjunction with a roadside checkpoint earlier in the evening, but were done for the night when the accident occurred. None of the eight people inside the mobile lab were injured. Southard was listed in stable condition from the injuries sustained in the accident as of last Monday.
