Three-vehicle collision leads to DUI arrest

- By Caleb Lunetta Signal Senior Staff Writer

A three-vehicle collision in Gorman early Saturday morning led to injuries for one and a suspected felony DUI arrest for another, according to law enforcemen­t officials.

The crash and subsequent arrest stemmed from a report of a multi-vehicle collision at approximat­ely 5 a.m. on the northbound side of Interstate 5, south of Quail Lake Road.

“There were injuries to (one person) involved in the other vehicle,” said Officer Josh Greengard, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol Newhall Office.

Greengard added that the driver of one of the vehicles was booked on suspicion of felony DUI and that only one person — not the alleged DUI suspect — had sustained injuries.

“Injuries are suspected to be minor, but any injury to another person will result in a felony booking,” the CHP spokesman said.

The 23-year-old woman from Lancaster, who investigat­ors believe to have caused the early morning crash while driving under the influence, was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station shortly after the initial incident.

She was held in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to law enforcemen­t booking logs.
