Man Injured in Solo Traffic Collision / DUI Suspected
On May 21st, 2018 at about 10:35 PM, Azusa Police Officers were sent to a call of a traffic collision in the area of First St and Angeleno Avenue. When they arrived, they saw that a Nissan Altima had collided head-on with a concrete support post for the 210 freeway bridge near that intersection. The front end of the vehicle sustained major damage and is likely a total loss. There appeared to be no other vehicles involved in the collision. The driver, a 49 year old La Puente resident, suffered several bleeding wounds to his head and face, as well as some serious internal injuries as a result of the crash. The driver showed symptoms of being under the influence of alcohol. However, due to the seriousness of his injuries, he was unable to perform any sobriety tests. He was transported by ambulance to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center for further treatment. The investigation into the collision is still underway. Further investigation may lead to charges of DUI being filed against the driver.
