33-Year-Old DUI Driver Involved in Traffic Crash near Frank Sinatra Drive

 
PALM DESERT, CA (September 30, 2018) – A man was arrested early Sunday morning following a DUI crash on Monterey Avenue.
 
According to the Palm Desert Police Department, the incident took place at about 2:30 AM near Frank Sinatra Drive. A white BMW, driven by 33-year-old Dilip Samaranayake of Cathedral City, was traveling at a high speed on Monterey Avenue when it collided with a Red Chevrolet pickup truck. The impact of the crash caused the pickup to spin and lose control.
 
Samaranayake initially did not stop after the collision. However, his vehicle became inoperative as a result of the damages sustained in the wreck. He was later arrested and booked at the county jail in Indio after it was determined that he was driving under the influence of alcohol. No injuries were reported by the authorities.
 
An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the accident and to identify other possible contributing factors. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the police at (760) 826-1600. No further details have been provided to the public at this time.
 
Do not get behind the wheel of a car if you find yourself under the influence of drugs or alcohol. By being responsible, you can keep yourself and others on the road safe. When buzzed or drunk, it is best to request an Uber, Lyft, or a taxi. If possible, reach out to a family member or a friend to come pick you up.
