The man accused by Utah Highway Patrol of being drunk when he crashed his red mustang into a UDOT truck Thanksgiving night, had previously posted to Facebook a photo of him apparently drinking and driving.

Sgt. Brady Zaugg with UHP says 25-year-old Keigan Matthew Sumsion was driving recklessly in a red Ford Mustang when he caused the crash near 5000 West on S.R. 201 just before 9:30 p.m.

Police say Sumsion was not injured but smelled like alcohol when they were interviewing him about the wreck.

After 2News searched Sumsion's Facebook page, we found a photo from December 14, 2017, which shows Sumsion with a bottle of Budweiser up to his lips while in the driver's seat of a vehicle.

The photo is captioned "F**k it," and it has been used as one of his Facebook profile pictures in the past, which has now been taken down off his Facebook profile.

Sumsion was found guilty of impaired driving in 2015.

The photo was posted two years after he was found guilty of that charge.

Sumsion is now facing DUI, reckless driving and open container charges related to Thursday's crash.
