Felony charge for driver

Police found Martinez's pickup truck on its roof, with Martinez hanging upside down in his seat belt.
Police said Martinez got off Interstate 680 about 1:30 a.m., knocked over a utility pole, swerved to miss another pole, slid sideways across the road, ran through the guardrail and rolled down an embankment.
He was charged with driving under suspension and DUI and booked into the Mahoning County jail after treatment.
Police said Martinez has had four DUI convictions since 1998, which makes this latest charge a felony.
