Man Remains in Critical Condition After Accident

An accused drunk driver faces several assault charges after three Panama City residents ended up in a Dothan hospital Wednesday after an accident.

Oscar White Jr. is charged with first degree assault and two counts of second degree assault.

Authorities say White was traveling South on Highway 231 in Dothan and tried to turn left on Inez Road.

That's when a car traveling north with three passengers hit white's vehicle and slammed into a light pole.

Investigators say White's blood-alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit when he drove into the path of the oncoming vehicle.

52-year-old John Jett of Panama City remains in critical condition at a Dothan hospital.
