A man was ar­rested Satur­day night and charged with DUI fol­low­ing a crash in south­west Fresno that left an­other man in­jured.

Po­lice Lt. Bill Doo­ley said a man, whose age or name was not re­leased, was driv­ing a truck east­bound on Cal­i­for­nia Av­enue near Inyo Street when he sud­denly swerved head-on into a west­bound white-colored Mus­tang.

The crash left the Mus­tang driver se­ri­ously in­jured, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. Doo­ley said the Mus­tang driver was “in and out of con­scious­ness” be­fore he was taken to Com­mu­nity Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter for treat­ment; po­lice re­ported the man was bleed­ing from the head. He was in stable con­di­tion Satur­day night, ac­cord­ing to Doo­ley.

The driver of the truck was eval­u­ated by po­lice and later ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of felony DUI. Doo­ley also said the al­leged drunken driver had a sus­pended li­cense.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened shortly be­fore 6 p.m. and closed traf­fic on Cal­i­for­nia Av­enue as po­lice in­ves­ti­gated. Doo­ley said south­west district po­lice of­fi­cers were alerted to the crash af­ter hear­ing a loud noise in the area. The crash was one of sev­eral re­ported Satur­day night.

PO­LICE ALSO SAID THE AL­LEGED DRUNKEN DRIVER HAD A SUS­PENDED LI­CENSE.
