SAN JOSE >> A 32-year-old man was ar­rested af­ter be­ing in­volved in an early Fri­day morn­ing col­li­sion that sent two cars slam­ming into an apart­ment com­plex in Wil­low Glen, au­thor­i­ties said.

Daniel Al­berto Quin­tana of San Jose was booked into Santa Clara County Jail for sus­pi­cion of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence.

At 1:23 a.m. Fri­day, San Jose po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of an in­jury traf­fic col­li­sion in the 100 block of Merid­ian Av­enue, ac­cord­ing to Of­fi­cer Gina Te­poorten. Based on their pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice said a man — later iden­ti­fied as Quin­tana — was driv­ing a white Honda Ac­cord north on Merid­ian ap­proach­ing Wil­low Street when he rear-ended a black Volkswagen sedan.

Both ve­hi­cles lost con­trol and “col­lided with por­tions of an apart­ment com­plex,” Te­poorten said.

The fe­male driver of the Volkswagen was not in­jured, but a male pas­sen­ger was taken to a hospi­tal for in­juries that were not life-threat­en­ing, Te­poorten said. Quin­tana, the driver of the Honda, was also taken to a hospi­tal for an in­jury not con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing. He was re­leased from a hospi­tal, then was booked into jail.

No res­i­dents of the apart­ment com­plex were in­jured.
