NEW GLARUS, Wis. A New Glarus man is facing an OWI charge after a two-vehicle crash early Thursday morning in the Town of New Glarus.

Christopher Coon, 45, of New Glarus was cited for operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration greater than .15 and for following too closely.

Around 12:30 a.m. a man in a vehicle was traveling southbound near the N9500 block of State Highway 69 when he attempted to turn onto Spring Valley Road.

Coon was driving the vehicle behind the man and collided into his car.

Both of the men sustained minor injuries.

Coon is awaiting an appearance in Green County Court.
