WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — One man was arrested for DWI at the scene of a  two-car accident late Sunday night in Wichita Falls. 

The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. at Kemp Boulevard and Midwestern Parkway, involving a Chrysler 300 and a Chevy Camaro.

Officers said the driver of the Chrysler, Victor Pichardo, was unbalanced and his breath smelled of alcohol, and when asked if had consumed any alcohol, said “Yes, a couple” and also stated “I shouldn’t have drank and then try to drive.” 

Police also say they saw empty alcoholic seltzer cans in the back seat.

Pichardo agreed to take a field sobriety test, and officers say he showed  8 of 8 clues during the walk and turn test, and at one point told them “I can’t do this, y’all.”  

Pichardo was later charged with DWI. 

Both Pichardo and the other driver received medical attention at the scene but no mention of serious injuries was in the incident report.
