26-year-old software engineer Adam Chance crashed his black Tesla into a tree on the right shoulder of the exit ramp onto I-40 West in the early hours of March 2nd. When officers arrived, Chance was standing next to his car and advised officers that he was driving westbound on I-40 West when a vehicle reportedly ran him off the road. A witness told officers they saw Chance swerving between lanes with his hazard lights on. The witness also stated that Chance told him he had two alcoholic beverages before the accident. Chance consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and agreed to provide a breath sample as officers noticed him reeking of alcohol. Chance’s breath sample resulted in 0.209 BAC%. Chance failed to blow for the second attempt and then was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
