Teen DUI Driver Arrested

A teenager was enjoying a fun night with his best friend in Orangevale. However, the night quickly came to a tragic end when the older friend began operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

What Happened?

A 16-year-old teen from Woodcreek High School was hanging out with his 18-year-old best friend on the night of Wednesday, November 2, 2016, when things went terribly wrong. The 18-year-old decided to drive while under the influence. For reasons that are still unclear, he got in his Toyota Prius to exit the Adam Baquera Park, located along Painted Desert Drive. Sadly, he crashed his vehicle into the 16-year-old teen. The impact from the crash caused the boy to sustain life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the hospital after sustaining severe pedestrian injuries. A GoFundMe account was created to assist the family with the teen’s medical expenses, who was left in critical condition after the accident.

We extend our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the young man who was seriously injured in this accident.
