PETALUMA, CA (June 24, 2020) – Late Sunday morning, the authorities arrested Hipolito Zarate after an injury crash on Petaluma Boulevard.
 
According to the Petaluma police, at around 10:40 a.m., 55-year-old Hipolito Salinas Zarate traveled south on Petaluma Boulevard north.
 
However, he then crashed into the rear of another car that had slowed to make a turn into a driveway.
 
After conducting a field sobriety test, the authorities found out that Zarate was intoxicated.
 
Thus, they took him into custody for felony DUI (causing injuries). Then, they booked Zarate to the Sonoma County Jail, where he stayed late Sunday with a bail set to $100,000.
 
Meanwhile, the two injured victims received treatment at the scene. Since they suffered only minor injuries, the authorities released them upon treatment.
 
Habits like distracted driving, speeding, and DUI can lead to road accidents. If you find yourself unable to safely operate a vehicle, you always have other options. For example, you can call a taxi service, Lyft, or Uber. By doing so, you can help ensure your safety and the safety of others.


Injuries in Auto Accidents

 
Each year, around 20-50 million people suffer injuries due to an auto crash. Unfortunately, not everyone is properly informed about the things you should do next after an injury crash.
 
The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Personal injury attorneys prioritize your recovery while securing your future from further losses a severe accident can bring.
 
“A common misconception is that personal injury lawyers don’t care. That is simply not true. Injury lawyers care about and want justice for their clients. We are driven by the desire to make our clients whole again,” says Steve Baric of Sweet Lawyers, a seasoned attorney.
