Griswold -- A New London man was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs early Sunday morning after police say he drove his Hummer the wrong way in the northbound lanes of Interstate 395 causing a four-vehicle crash. There were no injuries.

Jeffrey Decker, 57, of 52 Hawthorne Drive North, New London, was also charged with reckless driving and driving the wrong way. His bond was set at $3,500 and is scheduled to appear in Norwich Superior Court on April 25.

State police said that at approximately 1:08 a.m., Decker was driving a 2005 Hummer H2 south in the northbound lanes of I-395 when about a mile north of exit 22 he struck a Jeep driven by a man from Milford, Mass. This crash sent debris into a Buick sedan and a Honda minivan.
