PALM DESERT: DUI Driver Arrested for 2-Car Crash on Portola Avenue

PALM DESERT, California (August 1, 2014) – Melissa Turley, age 50 of Cathedral City, was arrested Thursday night following an alleged DUI car accident at the intersection of Portola Avenue and Quicksilver Drive, according to a press release by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Turley was reportedly driving under the influence of alcohol when her Ford Fusion rear-ended a Lexus sedan on Portola Avenue just before Quicksilver Drive, the report said. Police booked Turley into Riverside County Jail in Indio shortly after she was checked by medical staff at a local hospital.

Neither Turley, or the other driver who was hit by her car, reported any injuries.

Witnesses may contact the Palm Desert Police Department at 760-836-1600 or Crime Stoppers at 760-341-STOP (7867).

“Drunken drivers should never get behind the wheel of a car,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Nearly a third of all injury and fatal crashes involve alcohol in the United States.”
