20-Year Old DUII Driver Strikes House in Cedar Mill

June 18, 2017 -- Early this morning, a vehicle driven by a 20-year-old DUII driver struck a home in Cedar Mill. No one was injured. The driver's blood alcohol content was almost twice the legal limit.
On Sunday, June 18, 2017, just before 4 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the report of a vehicle striking a residence in the 2300 block of NW Woodrose Drive in Cedar Mill.

Deputies learned that Carter Culleton, 20, of Portland, was driving a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee when he hit a stop sign and collided with a residence. Fortunately, no one was injured. Alcohol played a role in this crash.

Mr. Culleton was charged with Driving While Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) and Criminal Mischief II. His blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit. The legal drinking age in Oregon is 21.

DUII enforcement is a priority for the sheriff's office. Our deputies arrest an average of 1,000 impaired drivers each year. DUII is a 100% preventable crime. The Washington County Sheriff's Office encourages the public to designate a driver when they consume substances that could impair their ability to drive. Other alternative forms of transportation, such as taxis or app-based Uber or Lyft, are readily available in the metro area.
