High School Student Gets Charged With DUI-GMH

The Statesman Journal reported that Adam Roth, a North Salem High School student, was charged with a DUI after crashing his car into a house in the 1200 block of Market Street NE around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. In addition to the DUI, Roth also received charges for driving recklessly and jeopardizing the lives of the three passengers that were riding with him. It was said that Roth and three other students were driving back to school from their lunch break when he crashed into the house. One of the passengers, Zack Rosenblatt, told sources that Roth’s head kind of went down. Roth, who was driving a 1968 blue Ford Mustang, accelerated past a stop sign, ran through a raised yard, and crashed into a house, damaging the siding and a water spigot.

Lieutenant Keith Blair stated that Roth had been smoking spice prior to the accident which impaired his ability to drive. Sources defined “spice” as a mix of various herbs that is sold as “synthetic marijuana”. In addition, Blair stated that spice has become increasingly popular among young individuals during the last couple of years. Luckily, none of the passengers received injuries. On the other hand, Roth received minor injuries and was taken to the Salem Hospital. It was noted that initially police officials thought the vehicle accident was related to a medical condition, however, after questioning Roth at the hospital, they learned that he had been DUI.
