Gerardo Castro Arrested in Templeton Motorcycle Crash on Old County Road
Templeton, CA (February 03, 2021) – On Tuesday, police arrested 19-year old Gerardo Castro in a motorcycle DUI crash on Old County Road.
The Templeton accident took place at around 2:10 A.M.
Apparently, Castro was drunk driving a 2002 Yamaha motorcycle at a speed in excess of 30 m.p.h.
He was accompanied by 19-year-old Alejandro Garibary. Neither Castro nor Garibary was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Due to his impairment and speed, Castro was unable to drive through the curve in the roadway. He drove into the fence of a residence bordering Old County Road.
As a result, both riders were thrown from the motorcycle. Then, they hit multiple fixed objects.
Immediately, Castro located the motorcycle and fled the scene on foot. He attempted to hide from the officers.
Moreover, authorities located Castro hiding behind an apartment complex. They arrested him for driving under the influence and felony hit and run.
Castro and Garibary were admitted to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
This incident serves as another reminder to never drink and drive.
