A 22-year-old man was impaired when he flipped his car early Tuesday near Lockheed Elementary, seriously injuring one of his passengers.

Mickael Lemoine, of Marietta, was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu south on Merritt Road when he lost control of the car in a curve and flipped it onto the roof in an embankment, according to Marietta police.

The 23-year-old back-seat passenger, Michael Wolcott, was taken to Kennestone Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. A passenger in the front seat, Ian Wolff, had minor injuries.

The crash occurred at 1:30 a.m., well before when any Lockheed students would be coming to school.

Lemoine was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, driving too fast for road conditions and failure to maintain a lane. He was also taken to Kennestone for his injuries.
