Officials said Bryan police officers were working the scene of a major accident on Wellborn Road early Saturday morning and had lanes of traffic blocked off when a vehicle entered the accident scene on the wrong side of the road.

When the vehicle was stopped, officers said in an arrest report, the driver, Ocia Sweed Jr., 32, appeared extremely intoxicated and told officers he wasn't sure where he was.

Sweed was convicted of driving while intoxicated two times in 2016 in Grimes County, according to court records.

Driving while intoxicated with at least two prior DWI convictions could be prosecuted as a third-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Sweed's bail was set at $8,000.
