Benton County Deputies say a driver is in jail for DUI after an early Monday morning crash in West Richland.

32-year-old Philip Morris was driving along Canal Road, when he failed to negotiate a corner and ended up IN the (fortunately!) dry canal, with his vehicle on it's side.

Deputies say he was arrested for DUI, he suffered only minor bumps and scratches but his diving record is going to take a far worse hit along with his vehicle.

This is the third such driver vs. canal crash in about the last ten days in the area.
