    James Pohlabeln.

    DAYTON, Ohio – Records show the driver of a wrong-way car that killed five in a crash including himself was jailed just over a day earlier on suspicion of drunken driving.

    The Dayton Daily News reports that driver James Pohlabeln was arrested early Thursday after his car collided with a parked car.

    The paper reports Pohlabeln was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and failure to control. He was released about 7 p.m. Thursday.

    Investigators suspect Pohlabeln had been drinking when he drove the wrong way on Interstate 75 in downtown Dayton around 3 a.m. Saturday before slamming head-on into an SUV.

    Three men killed in the SUV were members of a hard-rock band, CounterFlux, that played across the area. A female passenger in the SUV was also killed.

    Hard to believe. He doesn't look like a drinker.

    This could have been avoided if the other car had been armed with a drunk driver.

    a drunk thinks they're sober...I seen it on cops...the idiot says "I'm not drunk" and falls over.
    and they really believe they are not drunk

    Back around desert Storm (right before) a woman came on base that had a silver Hyundai with Colorado plates. I had recently been living in Colorado and it was kind of cool to see someone from my adopted state at the time ( I was a young dork) anyway as she walked by me I said hello are you from....she rudely kind of cut me off and quickly walked around me.

    Anyway then a few minutes later she came out of the building with a secretary I recognized. Got in her car full to the brim with kids and drove away.

    That afternoon when I got home the TV was on in the barracks and on the news was a car that had literally been destroyed unrecognizable only thing you could make out was the green Colorado plates.

    Bottom line she was driving home from that meeting with her sister in law when a 22 year old wrong way driver in a cutlass hit her head on!

    She died with her 3 little kids , her two teenage nieces that day in the middle of the afternoon a week before Christmas. Her husband was deployed in saudi arabia at the time he lost his entire family!

    Still get chills from this one
