Britni Irene Warner Hospitalized Following Highway 299 DUI Crash
Trinity County, CA (December 30, 2020) – On Christmas Day, 25-year-old Britni Warner , of Boise, Idaho was injured while police arrested 29-year-old Alfred Estrada of Weaverville, in a DUI crash on Highway 299.
Estrada was driving a 2006 Honda westbound on Highway 299, west of Tucker Hill Road.
At the same time, Ms. Warner was driving a 2012 Hyundai heading eastbound on Highway 299 west of Tucker Hill Road.
Due to Estrada’s level of intoxication, he was unable to control his vehicle while negotiating a sweeping right-hand turn.
Estrada’s vehicle spun and crossed over the double yellow lines. It went out of control, directly into the path of Warner’s Hyundai.
Unfortunately, Britni was unable to avoid a crash.
As a result, her vehicle crashed with the driver’s side of the Honda.
The impact of the crash and the fact that Estrada was not wearing a seatbelt caused him to be thrown from his vehicle.
Both Warner and Estrada sustained major injuries.
Immediately, responders took them to Mercy Medical Center in Redding.
Meanwhile, the CHP arrested Estrada for DUI at the scene of the crash. Then, they later released him to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Britni Warner sustained a broken knee, and is now riddled with medical debt of 100k.
