A single-vehicle, rollover wreck north of Clarkesville Saturday night resulted in the arrest of a Habersham County man.
Jordan Lee Mize, 29, of Clarkesville was driving a black Chevrolet Traverse on Stonepile Road toward his home when he entered a curve and left the roadway. According to a press release, he went into a ditch, overturned and the car landed on its roof. The wreck was reported at 8:12 p.m.
Mize fled the scene and was found in the bed at his house within a few minutes of the wreck. He claimed to have been at home asleep but was covered in cuts and scrapes.
The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office has charged Mize with driving under the influence, leaving the scene, too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane and no seatbelt.
Mize has been released from jail on bond.
