TOWN OF VIENNA (WKOW) -- A Waunakee man was arrested for drunk driving over the weekend, after two of his passengers were injured in a crash.

Officials say they responded to a single-vehicle crash on Schumacher Road in the Town of Vienna, around 3:20 a.m. Saturday, September 15.

Dane County officials say the driver, 21-year-old Cory Anderson, was driving south on Schumacher Road with three passengers when he lost control of his Jeep Liberty.

Authorities say two of the passengers -- 22-year-old Jared Markes and 21-year-old Andrew Anderson -- were taken by ambulance to UW Hospital.

Andrew Anderson was sitting in the front seat at the time of the crash. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the SUV. Officials say he has serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Cory Anderson was arrested for OWI-Causing Injury. He was also cited for operating left of center, failure to maintain control, and failure to stop at a stop sign. The crash remains under investigation by the Dane County Sheriff's Office.
