BRENTWOOD, Calif. (May 1, 2024) — Three people were injured in a Brentwood car accident Tuesday night involving an alleged drunk driver on Balfour Road at McViking Way.

The 3-vehicle collision occurred at around 9:26 p.m. on April 30th, according to the Brentwood Police Department and Contra Costa News.

Police reported Zachary Rau, 26, of Antioch, was driving a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck westbound on Balfour Road at high speed.

The pickup truck collided with a Toyota RAV-4 SUV which then collided with a Honda HR-V, police said.

Upon arrival at the scene, police found the 31-year-old Brentwood man who was driving the Toyota unconscious and unresponsive.

Paramedics extricated the man from the wreckage and he was airlifted by medical helicopter to a local hospital where he is listed as unstable.

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old Brentwood man driving the Honda HR-V was not injured.

However, a 26-year-old Antioch man riding in the Chevrolet pickup truck was taken to a hospital with serious no-life threatening injuries.

Finally, Zachary Rau was also treated at a hospital for minor injuries and was later arrested and booked at the Martinez Detention Facility for DUI and other charges for causing injuries.
