DUI Suspected in 3-Vehicle Crash

James PalinsadWe all have to share the road; which means certain laws must be followed. Speed limit, when to pass, when to turn, where to park — all of these laws are in place for the safety of everyone. Often when someone ignores them, someone is hurt and left with time away from work, repairs bills for a car (or the cost of a new car), medical bills, and other problems that take money to overcome. It’s only right that the person who was careless or reckless should have to pay those costs.

A three-vehicle collision left one person injured. It is suspected a teenager driving under the influence was involved, said Metro Police officials.

Metro was called to the scene of an accident at around 8 in the morning. One of the victims, riding in a truck, was ejected during the crash and taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, according to police.

A 19-year-old female in another vehicle involved in the crash was arrested for driving under the influence, according to police. There were no other injuries.
