Multiple Vehicle Crash in Quincy
An accident involving five vehicles resulted in the arrest of a man late Saturday night.
According to Quincy police, Quinton J. Ewing, 29 of Quincy, was driving while intoxicated northbound on 5th Street without headlights at a high rate of speed.
Ewing disobeyed a stop sign at Chestnut and was clipped by a Chrysler minivan traveling eastbound on Chestnut.
Ewing then crashed into a parked white Buick Roadmaster.
Ewing’s vehicle spun and came to a rest in the middle of 5th Street.
The force of the collision caused the Roadmaster to collide with a boat trailer and Jon Boat which was attached to a 2000 Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger was then pushed into a 2008 Cadillac sedan.
Bystanders broke a window and were pulling Ewing from the van when first responders arrived on scene. Ewing was taken to Blessing Hospital for injuries sustained during the crash. He was subsequently released from the hospital and was arrested and charged for multiple traffic offenses and a two outstanding warrants.
Adams County court records say Ewing has a 2010 conviction for Aggravated DUI where he was sentenced to probation. Ewing is also currently on felony probation for two separate felony counts of Possession of Controlled Substance and is also currently on Supervision for a 2015 DUI.
Ewing was arrested by Quincy Police for aggravated DUI, driving while license revoked, operating an uninsured vehicle, disobeying a stop sign and driving without headlights when required. He was also arrested for the two outstanding warrants for failure to appear for interfering in the city of Quincy and a warrant for failure to appear in Adams County for disorderly conduct.
Meanwhile, first responders were on scene of an incident at Fifth and College. One male was taken to Blessing Hospital for injuries sustained during an altercation. He remains hospitalized. Police are investigating whether the two events are related.
