SHELDON—A 38-year-old Sheldon man was arrested about 9:10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 19, on charges of first-offense operating while under the influence, failure to obey a yield sign and driving while his license was denied, suspended, canceled or revoked.
The arrest of Nathan Willis Silberstein stemmed from the investigation of a collision at the intersection of Sixth Street and Eighth Avenue in Sheldon, according to the Sheldon Police Department.
Silberstein was driving south on Eighth Avenue when he failed to yield from a yield sign and his 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe struck a westbound 2016 Ford Focus driven by 18-year-old Ethan Allen Reekers of Sheldon, according to the incident report.
The impact of the collision spun the Reekers’ vehicle into a fire hydrant on the southwest corner, breaking it off. The Ford came to rest in the yard of a residence.
No injuries were reported.
Silberstein had bloodshot, watery eyes and the odor of an alcoholic beverage and failed preliminary sobriety tests, according to the incident report.
The two vehicles were totaled.
