Suspected DUI Driver Causes 3-Car Crash: PD

A suspected DUI driver is responsible for a three-vehicle crash that tied up traffic on an Escondido road Wednesday night.

Escondido Police say just after 9 p.m., a black truck driving in the 1100 block of East Washington Avenue slammed into a silver sedan.

When they collided, it caused the car to roll over and hit another white sedan.

Officers say the truck driver tried to run from the scene, but he was arrested later on suspicion of DUI.

The victims' injuries are not significant, according to the EPD, but the crash sent debris flying across the roadway.

The area will be closed to traffic while officers investigate and begin the cleanup process.
