Josue Zavaleta of Hesperia Arrested in Alleged DUI Collision on Highway 14 [Newhall, CA]

Drunk Hesperia Man Causes Injury in 2-Vehicle Crash on 14 Freeway

Newhall, CA (May 10, 2024) On Wednesday evening, CHP arrested 31-year-old Josue Zavaleta after a suspected DUI crash on the 14 Freeway.

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the alleged DUI Crash happened at about 7:20 p.m. on Highway 14 at Escondido Canyon Road.

Reports say that a Kia sedan and a Volkswagen SUV were involved in the crash.

Investigating officers signs of alcohol intoxication with one of the drivers, later identified as Zavaleta. Officials booked Zavaleta to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station for felony DUI.

Meanwhile, the other parties were hurt in the collision. Authorities did not disclose the severity of injuries sustained.

CHP is investigating the 2-vehicle crash and has not released further information at this time.

Meanwhile, here are some safety tips:

  • Never drink and drive.
  • Don’t let someone get behind the wheel if that person has been drinking.
  • If you’re hosting a gathering, make sure everyone has a sober ride home.
  • Call 911 if you see a drunk driver.
  • Always wear your seat belt. It’s your best defense against impaired drivers.

Just one drink before driving can put you and others in danger because alcohol impairs thinking, reasoning, and muscle coordination. Impaired driving poses a serious threat to road safety. It increases the risk of accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Alcohol and drugs impair judgment, reaction time, and coordination, making it difficult for drivers to safely operate a vehicle.

By choosing not to drink and drive, you are taking an important step towards protecting yourself and others on the road.
