Ledyard Police Lt. Michael Finkelstein said that around 2:21 p.m., Joshua M. Olsen, 33, of 21 Sherman Street in Norwich was traveling south on Route 12 when his 1989 GMC crossed the center line and crashed, head-on, into a 2002 Dodge driven by Roger Kaufman, 69, of 10 Sachem Road in Uncasville. No one required emergency transportation to the hospital but after investigation, Olsen was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, failure to drive right, and failure to maintain insurance.  Olsen was processed and released and given a Dec. 28 court date.
