KENOSHA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) - A Kenosha County man who was killed by an alleged drunk driver was identified today as 27-year-old Brian Smith of Salem.  

The driver, a 29-year-old Paddock Lake man, was arrested for drunken homicide. Criminal action is pending. Authorities also ticketed the driver for traffic violations.  

The crash occurred right around the time the bars were closing early Sunday.

Authorities said the vehicle lost control on a curve, slid into a ditch, hit a culvert, rolled over several times, hit a fire hydrant, and chopped off a utility pole.  

The driver was treated at a Kenosha hospital before being taken to jail.
