2 people hurt after allegedly drunk driver runs stop sign in Mountain View

SAN DIEGO, CA – A suspected drunk driver is said to have run a stop sign in Mountain View yesterday, causing himself and another driver to be injured, according to FOX 5 San Diego.

The accident happened at 6:08 p.m. in the 400 block of S 45th Street, when the 35-year-old driver of a black 2012 Ford Fusion allegedly ran a stop sign.

The Fusion collided with a red 2003 Ford Ranger pickup truck being driven by a 49-year-old man, then collided with a parked vehicle. That parked vehicle then struck a second automobile.

The driver of the Ranger sustained a broken leg in the crash.

The other driver suffered a laceration to the head. He is thought to have been under the influence at the time of the crash.

Authorities continue to investigate the collision.
