Ashland Police gave the male driver a field sobriety test and eventually took him into custody for suspected DUI.  He was placed in handcuffs and transported to the hospital for testing.

No injuries were reported.

Responding to the scene were Ashland Police along with the American Hose Company, Washington Rescue, Ashland Fire Police, and Washington Ambulance.

The boulevard was closed for approximately a half hour until the scene was cleared.
