Anaheim- 5 Utah Teens Injured In A DUI Crash
5 teens from Utah were injured in a DUI crash involving a drunk driver in Anaheim on Friday, July 26, 2019, a few minutes before midnight. According to the police, among those 5 teens injured in the crash, an 18-year old girl sustained possible life threatening injuries. Four 18-year old male passengers also sustained major injuries from the crash. The drunk driver involved in the crash was identified as Leobardo Robledo. Robledo was arrested on felony suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Robledo also sustained major injuries from the crash. The 18-year old girl who was injured in the crash sustained brain injuries and multiple fractures. All of the 5 teens from Utah, though, were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. One of the male teens injured in the crash suffered from multiple fractures, including in his ribs and trachea, a puncture in his kidney, and internal bleeding. He reportedly had to be placed in a medically induced coma for surgery. The other male teen involved in the crash was reportedly in intensive care with a brain bleed. All of the injured teens, though, were reportedly in stable condition. Robledo reportedly ran a red light with his 2014 Dodge Sedan and crashed his vehicle into a 2014 Honda Fit. Both vehicles, then, crashed into a utility pole, thus, injuring all 6 people involved in the crash.
