Coachella Accident Avenue 52 and Education Way; Salvador Celaya Arrested1 Injured in DUI Crash at Avenue 52 and Education Way

COACHELLA (September 10, 2017) – On September 8, Friday, a traffic collision occurred at Avenue 52 and Education Way, according to Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner.

According to the press release, the incident happened around 7:33 p.m. when a 2010 Ford F-250 headed west on Avenue 52 crashed into a city works tractor. The tractor was reportedly at a stop for clearing the roadway of debris when the collision happened.

Medical personnel were dispatched to Avenue 52 at the Education Way intersection shortly after the police was notified. Upon arrival, paramedics rendered aid to the driver of the tractor who suffered injuries of unspecified severity. It was not immediately clear if the victim was treated at the scene or taken to the hospital.

Coachella DUI Crash

Meanwhile, authorities handling the investigation mentioned the involved Ford driver was identified as 33-year-old Salvador Celaya. Sobriety tests suggested Celaya was under the influence during the crash.

Riverside officials noted charges will be filed against Celaya for felony driving under the influence and causing injuries to another person.


The California Vehicle Code Section 23153 states that it is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law. It is a violation for an intoxicated motorist to neglect any duty imposed by law in driving a vehicle which proximately causes bodily injury to another person.

In this specific case, it is evident that Mr. Salvador Celaya will be held liable for causing the collision that led to an innocent man injured. Victims in DUI accidents have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver, and seek compensation for damages incurred in the crash including hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and emotional trauma.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
