Motorist Fled DUI Checkpoint Then Collides With Another Vehicle on 16th Street
San Diego, CA (October 26, 2020) – On Friday a driver of a Range Rover was injured in a DUI crash with an Audi at the intersection of G Street and 16th Street.
According to the San Diego Police, they have a DUI checkpoint in East Village that had them arresting at least 9 drivers.
Meanwhile, a motorist on a white Audi who was entering the checkpoint at 14thStreet and G Street fled away from the scene. This is after an officer attempting to screen the motorist and opening the driver’s side door.
Subsequently, the Audi went East on 16th Street and did not stop at a red light. This proves unwise as a Range Rover had the green light and T-Bones the Audi.
Moreover, paramedics took the Rover’s driver to the hospital for immediate treatment, while authorities caught the Audi’s driver on Highway 94 after he fled the scene of the crash.
Lastly, Police say the suspect’s blood-alcohol level is at .17%, which is double the legal limit in California. Also, a handgun with live bullets was found inside the suspect’s car.
