Police: 4th-offense impaired driver apologizes to officers, says wreck was his fault

A suspected fourth-offense impaired driver told police he was the first car in a chain-reaction crash on the west Madison Beltline Saturday night.

The Madison Police Department said officers responded to a report of a multi-vehicle crash on the Beltline East near Old Sauk Road at 11:35 p.m.

According to the report, 43-year-old Daniel J. Blake, of Madison, apologized to police and told officers the wreck was his fault.

Police said Blake told officers the chain-reaction collisions began when he rear-ended a vehicle.

No one was injured, the report said.

Police said the suspected impaired driver’s car sustained extensive damage. The crash partially blocked the busy Beltline until the tow truck arrived.
