Police Arrest 23-Year-Old Gerson Perez in DUI Crash on Rumble Road
Modesto, CA (February 09, 2021) – On Sunday night, an 18-year-old man was injured while police arrested 23-year-old Gerson Perez of Modesto in a DUI crash on Rumble Road.
The traffic crash took place at about 8:30 p.m. west of Yukon Drive near the Virginia Corridor Trailway.
Perez was driving west on a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a fence. Afterward, he also struck a power pole and a crosswalk sign.
Authorities said speed also appears to be a factor in the accident.
Right away, responders took Perez and his passenger by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Then, officers booked Perez at the Stanislaus County Jail Monday morning, with bail set at $50,000.
