A Columbus teen was arrested after a Thursday night incident where the pickup truck he was driving crashed into four vehicles. Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, says that at approximately 8 p.m., Deputy Corey Lehman was dispatched to a crash at the intersection of North Marr Road and East County Road 550 North. Opon arrival, Deputy Lehman reported finding 19-year-old Hayden Zapfe sitting behind the wheel of a pickup truck. Jackson says the investigation indicated that Zapfe was driving southbound on North Marr Road when he ran off the roadway and collided with four other vehicles that were parked at a business near the intersection.

Authorities say that Zapfe was found to be in possession of marijuana and displayed signs of impairment. He was also allegedly driving without a license. Zapfe was arrested on preliminary charges of Operating a Motor Vehicle while Intoxicated and Possession of Marijuana.

He has since been released on bond.
