Motorist responsible for accident found with cocaine in vehicle

40-year-old Keith Acker of Lake Geneva drove into the exit sign of Pritchard Park, according to police. A witness, who was also a passenger in the car, says that Acker seemed to have suffered a seizure while driving, and hit the sign while unconscious.

When Acker was removed from the car to be taken to the hospital, police quickly discovered drug paraphernalia and a substance that, after testing, was revealed to be cocaine. Acker has been convicted of drug possession in the past, so he could face additional charges if convicted again. If convicted, potential penalties could include up to 3 years and 9 months in prison, as well as fines as high as $10,500.

Thankfully, no other vehicles were involved in this accident, but far too often, drivers who are under the influence of either drugs or alcohol cause significant damage to innocent and unsuspecting motorists.
