Shortly before 7 p.m., officers were notified of someone driving under the influence in the Oxbow district, according to Sgt. Mike Walund. The motorist later continued toward the intersection of Lincoln and Soscol avenues before crossing a median and striking another vehicle, in which an occupant suffered minor injuries, Walund said.
