Several Injured after Rear-End Collision at OC DUI Checkpoint

DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols have become the go-to enforcement tactic for agencies across the country, especially during weekends and holidays. That's why law enforcement officers throughout Orange County had set up a number of checkpoints across the region this past weekend – the weekend preceding Cinco de Mayo. While officers may have expected to arrest a few motorists for driving under the influence, it is likely they didn't expect a collision to occur.

Shortly after 8:00 pm on Friday evening, May 2nd, a man approaching a DUI checkpoint near Valley View Street and Lincoln Avenue in Cypress caused a significant rear-end collision. According to Cypress police, several people were injured and three victims were taken to local hospitals with moderate injuries.

Authorities have also reported that the man driving the vehicle allegedly fled the scene on foot. He was detained by officers a short time later. During the apprehension, one officer was injured. The man was booked into Orange County jail on multiple charges and his bail was set at $100,000.

Although reports have not specified if the man was suspected of driving under the influence, the fact that he caused multiple injuries, fled the scene, and injured an officer while resisting arrest will likely subject him to very elevated penalties. The same holds true for individuals who commit similar aggravating acts while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI – including DUI with aggravating circumstances – the need for a proven and experienced Orange County DUI lawyer is essential. Call 877-384-7833 to learn how the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry can help.
