Two Fatal Crashes In Lake-Sumter Area

24/7 Headline News reported on a DUI-related accident that killed two and left an allegedly intoxicated driver in critical condition last Sunday evening. 

The original incident occurred around 5:15 p.m. on Sunday, October 17 near the intersection of Cajon Boulevard and Keenbrook Road. A blue Chevrolet Suburban sport-utility vehicle was headed south on Cajon Boulevard approaching Keenbrook Road when the driver, who was apparently intoxicated according to sources from the California Highway Patrol, crossed over the center double yellow lines and into oncoming traffic, striking a silver Toyota Camry sedan head-on. CHP spokespeople stated that this caused the Chevy Suburban to roll, where it was impacted by a gray Nissan Titan pickup truck. This impact caused the driver of the Suburban to be ejected from his vehicle. In the meantime, a white Ford F-150 pickup truck crashed into the Toyota Camry. 

The passenger in the Chevy Suburban, a young boy six years of age, was declared dead at the scene of the accident, as was the driver of the Toyota Camry, a woman of 28 years of age. The driver of the Chevy Suburban was medically transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center in critical injuries and was placed under arrest while at the hospital on charges of DUI causing bodily injury.
