    A teenage driver was arrested Wednesday after he returned to the scene of a rollover crash with his father, California Highway Patrol officers said.

    The vehicle crashed on the offramp from southbound Interstate 5 to Palm Avenue just after 3 a.m., CHP officers said.

    The driver was initially reported missing by officers on the ground. CHP requested air support to search through the bushes in the area because they were worried he may have been ejected in the crash.

    Shortly after, the driver returned to the scene with his father.

    CHP investigators say the 19-year-old man lived in the area and may have been on his way home when the crash occurred.

    He was arrested at the scene for driving under the influence.
