A 43-year-old man was in custody today on suspicion of driving drunk and causing a three-vehicle crash in Mission Valley that injured four other people, including a pregnant woman, police said.
The crash in the 2400 block of Hotel Circle South was reported at 10:07 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.
The man was driving a Ford F150 westbound when the pickup drifted across the roadway and struck a Nissan Versa head-on, he said in a statement. A Volvo then sideswiped the Ford.
A 46-year-old man behind the wheel of the Versa suffered a laceration to his hand and two passengers in his vehicle were also injured, Delimitros said, adding the passengers were a 50-year-old man who suffered fractures to his spine, leg and arm, and a 41-year-old pregnant woman who suffered broken
ribs and a fractured spine.
The Volvo was driven by a 54-year-old woman who suffered minor injuries, Delimitros said.
The man was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of felony drunken driving.
