CHP Searches for Suspected DUI Wrong-Way Driver

Daniel Castro is wanted on DUI and failure to appear in court charges

 San Diego law enforcement is searching for a suspected DUI wrong-way driver who failed to appear in court after posting bail.

On May 22, 2013, Daniel Castro, 32, drove his Toyota Sequoia the wrong way onto Interstate 5 near 1st Ave., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Castro is accused of then hitting a Ford Fusion head-on, causing the 28-year-old driver to lose her left arm and sustain other major injuries from the crash.

Officers arrested Castro for driving under the influence causing injury, and he later posted bail.

Recently, the CHP said Castro failed to appear in court on the DUI charges, so there is an outstanding $600,000 warrant out for his arrest.

Castro is described as a 5-foot-4-inches, weighing about 150 pounds with a medium to heavy build. According to the CHP, he was seen lately with a full beard and medium length hair.

The suspect was living in Escondido at the time of his arrest, and he also plays keyboard in the band “Long Live Logos.”

If you know where Castro may be, the CHP asks that you call 619-220-5492 ext. 234.
