When someone makes the terrible decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol, that person can wind up in terrible legal trouble for many reasons.

Unfortunately, that’s what police are investigating with regards to a suspected San Diego DUI accident that occurred early on Sunday morning.
According to the authorities, this suspected San Diego DUI accident occurred on Sunday morning at just after 1 a.m. A Ford pickup truck and a black sedan were involved in a crash on Interstate 5 just south of Highway 163. The crash left behind a wake of debris and damaged a guard rail, and three people were transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.
