(ABC 6 News) -- A Byron man was arrested Monday night after the car he was driving allegedly crashed into one driven by a 26-year-old woman.

Trevor Harden, 28, was westbound on Highway 14 about 6:30 p.m. when he attempted to turn left onto the ramp toward southbound Highway 52. According to Capt. Casey Moilanen of the Rochester Police Department, Harden's vehicle struck a car that was driving east on Hwy. 14, sending that car onto its side.

Harden then drove away, Moilanen said.

While officers were at the crash site, Harden called dispatch and allegedly admitted his involvement. Police went to a business on 48th Street SW, where Harden was waiting.

The report says Harden appeared to be under the influence, and failed field sobriety tests. Officers obtained a search warrant for a sample of his urine to test for alcohol.

Moilanen said Harden told the officers he went to his grandfather's house "and slammed four beers" after the crash, because he was scared and upset.

He was arrested, and could face charges of fourth-degree DWI, criminal vehicular operation, driving after revocation, hit and run, and failure to yield the right of way.

The other driver, a woman from Byron, was checked out at the scene by members of Gold Cross; Moilanen said her injuries weren't serious.
