One man was arrested after a collision in south Lincoln.

Just after midnight, Tuesday, emergency crews were called to 27th and Hoy Streets for a two car crash.

Lincoln Police Sergeant Steve Wiese said their initial investigation leads them to believe one vehicle was traveling south on 27th and admitted to driving below the speed limit due to deer in the area. Wiese said he did not know how much below the posted 45 mph speed limit the driver was traveling.

According to Wiese, the driver noticed a vehicle coming up behind them at a very high rate and to avoid being hit from behind, turned toward the shoulder, but the two collided.

The first car ended up on the west side of the road near a tree. The second car driven by 27 year old Nathaniel Snyder finally came to a stop several yards away, in the east ditch.

According to Wiese, the two people in the first car were treated and released at the scene. Snyder refused medical treatment. Both cars are believed to be totaled.

Snyder was cited for negligent driving and DUI. He tested with a.225 blood alcohol level.
