Victorville Police is investigating a 22-year-old man for allegedly driving under the influence with a suspended license and causing physical injury to another while behind the wheel this early Wednesday morning, according to local authorities.
At around one a.m. deputies from the San Bernardino County, Sheriff’s Victorville Station reported to a traffic collision on Highway 395 near Palmdale Road in Victorville. Two cars, a 2000 Honda Civic driven by Eduardo Pitones, a 22-year-old Victorville resident, and a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder driven by an Adelanto woman, 35, were apart of the incident.
The driver of the Nissan was stopped in the northbound lane of Highway 395, as they were given instructions from workers doing road construction in the area. Pitones, who was traveling north as well with a 22-year-old female passenger, failed to recognize the stopped vehicle and rear-ended the Nissan, according to police officials.
It was revealed that Pitones was driving under the influence of alcohol, with her blood alcohol level reaching twice the legal limit, officials reported.
The 35-year-old woman driving the Nissan was taken to a local hospital, her injuries were unspecified, while the 22-year-old passenger that was with Pitones was transported by ground to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for unspecified injuries.
Pitones had no injuries and was taken into custody and booked at High Desert Detention Center on suspicion of felony driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, authorities released.
