A charge of driving under the influence has been dismissed against a Union City man who was charged following a December 2010 traffic crash in Christian County, Ky.
The charge against Robert C. Cook III, 37, was dismissed Tuesday in Christian County District Court, according to a staff member in the office of Cook’s attorney, Kenneth Haggard.
He had been charged with DUI 1st Offense (aggravating circumstances) in connection with a wreck that occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Dec. 26, 2010, according to the Kentucky State Police.
The KSP reported Cook was southbound on Tutt Road when the vehicle he was driving dropped off the left shoulder of the roadway. He apparently overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle, which crossed both lanes of travel and exited the right shoulder of the roadway, where it struck a tree head-on.
Cook was taken to an area hospital for treatment of injuries.
