Police Arrest 49-Year-Old Brian Kane in Bodega Avenue DUI Crash
Petaluma, CA (May 07, 2021) – On Wednesday, a Hyundai female driver was injured and police arrested 49-year-old Brian Kane, a Petaluma man, in a DUI crash on Bodega Avenue.
Moreover, the accident happened at about 8:53 p.m. at the intersection of North Webster Street.
Apparently, Kane’s white 2016 Chevrolet pickup crashed into a westbound black 2019 Hyundai after running a red light.
The Hyundai driver lost control of her vehicle and drove up on the sidewalk. Thus, she sustained minor injuries and rescuers took her to a hospital.
Meanwhile, Kane’s vehicle collided with a traffic signal pole.
Furthermore, after the collision, Kane reversed and tried to speed off with a damaged front end and only three tires with the bottom of his truck scraping the road.
His vehicle also partially uprooted a tree. Witnesses helped him out of his truck and kept him at the scene until the authorities arrived.
An officer conducted field sobriety tests on Kane, and he performed poorly. As a result, the authorities arrested him on suspicion of felony driving under the influence and causing injury. They took him to a hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
He was later booked at Sonoma County Jail.
This is an important reminder that driving under the influence is not only illegal, but also incredibly dangerous.
