Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Business -

ANA­HEIM (CNS) — A 24-year-old mo­torist was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of felony driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and drugs for al­legedly trig­ger­ing a crash that in­jured six peo­ple, in­clud­ing a woman who was crit­i­cally in­jured, a po­lice sergeant said Sat­ur­day.

Leo­bardo Robledo of Ana­heim al­legedly ran a red light in a black 2014 Dodge sedan go­ing south­bound on Manch­ester Av­enue and struck a black 2019 Honda Fit that was go­ing east­bound on Orange­wood Av­enue, Ana­heim Po­lice Sgt. Daron Wy­att said.

“Both ve­hi­cles then struck a util­ity pole caus­ing ma­jor dam­age to both ve­hi­cles and se­ri­ously in­jur­ing the oc­cu­pants of both ve­hi­cles,” Wy­att said.

Robledo was the lone oc­cu­pant in the Dodge sedan. There were four 18-yearold men and an 18-year-old woman — all res­i­dents of Utah — in­side the Honda Fit, he said.

“All are con­sid­ered to be in sta­ble (con­di­tion) ex­cept for the fe­male pas­sen­ger, who is in crit­i­cal con­di­tion, with po­ten­tially life-threat­en­ing in­juries,” he said.
