Antioch: Man Arrested For Suspected DUI, 5-Year-Old Airlifted to Local Hospital


On June 6, 2018 at approximately 8:14 AM, Antioch Patrol and Traffic Officers responded to E 18th Street near Viera Avenue for a 3 car vehicle collision.

According to Sergeant James Stenger, it was determined that a 27 year-old male from Oakley was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on E 18th Street and rear ended a SUV that had just pulled from northbound Viera Avenue onto eastbound E 18th Street.

This caused the SUV to overturn several times. A third vehicle was struck by the SUV as it was overturning. A 52 year-old female and 30 year-old female from the SUV were transported to a local hospital for complaint of pain.

A 5 year-old male from the third vehicle was transported via a Reach Helicopter to an area children’s hospital for precautionary measures.

The 32 year-old female guardian of the 5 year-old was transported to the hospital with the child with complaint of pain. The 27 year-old male was suspected of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage.

He was transported to a local hospital for precautionary measures and will be arrested for DUI after being medically cleared.

  1. This is the result of having virtually zero traffic units on the street for a decade. The low life’s in Antioch have been exploiting these conditions for years. APD only deals with reactive situations such as this in Antioch. Having one Officer assigned to traffic in a city of 115,000+ is nothing less than absurd. The criminals are well aware of their ability to violate all traffic laws in this town. It seems like everyday I drive these streets, some dirt bag is flying though red lights, driving dirt bikes through the streets, driving on the shoulder and blowing stop signs. The criminals also realize that you can drive drunk in Antioch, as long as you don’t hit anything. This clown apparently didn’t have the odds on his side today.

  2. He’s drunk at 8:15 am? What did he have for breakfast? A liter of high proof tequila? I bet he was stoned as well.

    • Lets make excuses for this douchebag….or maybe hes just a fuking lowlife scumbag, that only thinks about himself?? When are people going to be held accountable for their actions?

  3. He actually worked a late shift and decided to drink way too much after work. Still intoxicated he chose to drive. No marijuana or anything just stupid and drunk
