A 20-year-old male driver from Wheaton was driving while under the influence of cannabis when he crashed head-on with another car Monday evening in west suburban Lisle, according to Lisle Police Department.

Cole T. Dixon crossed into oncoming lanes about 7:00 p.m. Monday January 20, 2020 and crashed near Route 53 and Main Street. Dixon and the other driver, who were the only occupants in each of the vehicles, were not seriously injured, according to a Lisle Police Department release.

The crash occurred in the northbound lanes of Route 53 (Lincoln Avenue) just north of the Main Street T-intersection. There is a slight curve on Route 53 at the location, and the Speed Limit is 35 MPH.

Dixon “showed heavy impairment” in a field sobriety test — the same field sobriety test given to suspected drunken drivers. He was immediately arrested after the field sobriety test.

Dixon was charged with misdemeanor counts of …

DUI-drugs,

unlawful possession of cannabis and

improper lane usage.

Dixon faces the unlawful possession of cannabis charge because he was under the legal age to carry cannabis. In Illinois, the legal age to possess cannabis is 21 years-old.

Additionally, Dixon was carrying the marijuana in a plastic baggie instead of an airtight container, which is required by the new Illinois law that went into effect January 1, 2020. Some police officers have described this as analogous to driving with an open liquor container.

Dixon was not administered a chemical test, but police will likely subpoena his blood test results from the hospital to further confirm he was driving while under the influence of the cannabis drug.

“We realize that cannabis is legal, but impaired driving is not legal and can obvious be quite dangerous.”

— Deputy Chief Ron Wilke, Lisle Police Department

Cole T. Dixon was released on his own recognizance, according to police, and is due in DuPage County court Wednesday, February 19, 2020.
