Suspected DUI Driver Arrested After 605 Freeway Crash in Santa Fe Springs
SANTA FE SPRINGS, California (May 4, 2016) — One person was taken to hospital following a two-vehicle collision involving a suspected drunken driver early Wednesday morning on the northbound Interstate 605 Freeway, a California Highway Patrol report said.
The crash took place about 2:27 a.m. near the connection to the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway between a 4-door sedan and an SUV with front-end damage. There was a bumper blocking the right lane following the crash. Paramedics with the Downey Fire Department responded and rushed the injured person to a local hospital.
CHP officers booked the male driver at the Pico Sheriff’s Office on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“There is never an excuse to drive drunk with all the options available to people these days,” said Attorney James Johnson. “This collision was 100 percent preventable. I hope the person who was injured has a full recovery.”
