A 34-year-old Hockessin man will face his sixth DUI charge following a crash Tuesday night--circumstances reminiscent of his 5th DUI charge--Delaware State Police announced Wednesday. 

According to authorities, David L. Brower was operating a Ford Focus along Newport Gap Pike near Lancaster Pike when he crossed multiple lanes of traffic back and forth before striking an embankment in the yard of a residence on Chapel Court, where Route 48 and Route 41 meet. 

The intersection was the site of a rollover crash involving a tractor trailer hauling pineapples and bananas less than a year ago, in April of 2019.  

Police said the crash occurred around 10:30 p.m. on February 18, 2020. Emergency responders transported Brower to Christiana Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and an investigation determined the man previously convicted of DUI five times had been driving under the influence at the time of the crash, police said. 

Brower will be formally charged with DUI-6th offense, failure to remain in a single lane of travel, unreasonable speed, and driving while suspended or revoked upon discharge from the hospital. He was previously hospitalized before being charged with DUI in earlier incidents.
