Collision Causes Seven People To Be Hospitalized; Possible DUI – San Diego

An accident in Lemon Grove on Saturday was possibly caused by one of the drivers operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol, according to the local authorities. Two vehicles were involved in the crash, which happened a little before 4 p.m. at the intersection of Central Avenue and Citrus Street. Fortunately, there were no fatalities or critical injuries resulting from the impact, but there were some precautionary hospitalizations and a number of people involved. Passengers between the two vehicles included both children and adults, but all those who were injured were adults; the children were the precautionary hospitalizations. In total, three adults and four children were taken to the hospital for injuries with one of the adults being the suspected drunken driver and the other two being the driver and front passenger of the other vehicle. Police have not indicated if any charges will be placed against the suspected DUI or if the driver will be taken into custody. Most likely, any action would take place after the driver recovers and their blood alcohol level is examined.
