RACINE, Wis. - Racine police believe alcohol had something to do with a head-on crash, in which one driver fled the scene.

Fifty-eight-year-old Cruz Castro is accused of colliding his vehicle into another this week.

A family friend reportedly called police after witnessing the accident.

Police say they later found Castro in that friend's home in his underwear, then took him to a hospital for a blood draw.

This is Castro's eighth drunken driving offense.

His preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
