Drinking suspected of father in crash

BRAZIL — An Indianapolis man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after he crashed a vehicle in which his autistic daughter was a passenger.

Richard E. Loschen, 52, was arrested Sunday evening on Interstate 70 near the 18-mile marker in Clay County following a two-vehicle crash in the eastbound lanes.

Master Trooper Todd Brown investigated the crash and determined that an eastbound 2008 Dodge Caliber, driven by Loschen, veered right from the passing lane into the rear of a 2009 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck driven by Kenneth D. Wilzoch, 23, of Canton, Ohio.

Brown said Loschen smelled strongly of alcohol and showed signs of intoxication. A full case of beer was found hidden under the Loschen vehicle. Inside the vehicle was the man’s 27-year-old autistic daughter.

Loschen tested 0.16 percent blood-alcohol level. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08. He was booked into the Clay County Jail for driving while intoxicated and endangering a person. Bond was set at $7,000, cash only.

No one was injured.
