2 Injured in DUI Crash near Highland Ranch Road
SAN DIEGO, CA (June 13, 2018) – Two people were injured in a daytime drunken driving crash Wednesday afternoon on World Trade Drive.
The crash occurred at around 1:15 PM when a 22-year-old man, identified as Daniel Kalani Warner, was driving a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage northbound on the 12100 block of World Trade Drive. He veered off the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a large Kenworth box truck that was parked and unoccupied.
A 19-year-old woman riding in the Mirage sustained serious facial injuries and was transported to the hospital for treatment and evaluation. Her identity was not immediately released. Warner suffered minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital. He was arrested upon his release.
According to jail records, Warner was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail on suspicion of two felony charges — driving under the influence and causing great bodily harm. He remained behind bars as of Thursday following his arrest.
No additional information has been disclosed to the public at this time, as officials from the San Diego Police Department’s traffic division continue their investigation.
