At approximately 1:56 a.m., a deputy spotted a suspected DUI driver in the area of Cole Avenue. The driver of that vehicle turned off it’s lights and sped off at a high rate of speed before the deputy initiated a traffic stop.
According to the CHP incident log, the deputy did not pursue the vehicle due to the high rate of speed. Shortly after the driver sped off, the deputy located the truck which had been involved in a wreck and overturned at the intersection of Nandina and Cole Avenues.
The deputy discovered the driver had been ejected from the vehicle and immediately requested medical personnel and CHP officials to the scene of the accident.
CHP officers, CalFire/Riverside County firefighters, and other emergency first responders were dispatched to the scene of the major-injury rollover accident.
AMR medics transported the driver to a local hospital in serious condition with a broken femur and other major traumatic injuries.
It has not been confirmed if the driver was actually under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
CHP officials are investigating the cause of the crash.
“Many people don’t realize they can suffer a traumatic brain injury in a car accident even when there has been no head impact,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law, a California personal injury law firm. “Indeed, the symptoms often show up later when the victim can’t remember names or events as well. It’s important to see a doctor and treat this type of injury soon after a collision.”
