Car Ends Up In Fox River

Posted by wlpo on April 5, 2010

Allegedly having too much to drink led to an unplanned dip in the river for an Ottawa man.

Jayme Seroka was driving east on East Superior Street in Ottawa early yesterday morning when police say he blew through a stop sign, drove through a grassy area and went airborne off a 30-foot embankment and into the Fox River.  The owner of the car, Donald Broadus was along for the ride in the backseat.  Both guys swam out of their cars before police came.

Broadus was taken to Ottawa Regional Hospital.  Seroka was ticketed for drunk driving and improper lane use and was taken to the county jail because he was wanted on a failure to appear warrant.

The Buick was later towed from the river.
