— A member of the Orange County Board of Education has been cited for driving while impaired, authorities said.

The charge against Ted Triebel, 67, stems from a Nov. 5 wreck on Guess Road, authorities said. A 1995 Honda ran off the side of the road east of Walker Farm Road, hit a mailbox, rolled over into a ditch and hit a tree, authorities said.

Triebel was injured in the wreck and was treated at Duke University Hospital.
