Occupants Injured In Traffic Collision

Occupants Injured In Traffic Collision
This morning, at about 6:15 am, the Azusa Police Department received several 9-1-1 calls regarding a traffic collision in the intersection of San Gabriel Avenue and Sierra Madre Avenue. Azusa Police officers and fire fighters from the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived and began an investigation, as well as treating the injured occupants.
 
Based on statements and evidence collected at the scene, the preliminary investigation suggests that one of the vehicles, a Honda Acoord, had been traveling south on San Gabriel Avenue, when it entered the intersection, against a red light. The Honda crashed into a Dodge truck, which had been traveling wes on Sierra Madre Avenue.

The driver of the Honda, Ricardo Campos, suffered moderate head injuries, while his front passenger sustained a spinal fracture. The driver of the Dodge sustained moderate injuries to his knee and rib cage. All of the injured were stabilized at the scene and transported to local hospitals for advanced treatment.

While the collision remains under investigation, it appears alcohol was a factor in the collision. Campos was arrested for felony DUI, but remains hospitalized as of this writing.

If you have any additional information regarding this accident, please call the Azusa Police Department at (626) 812-3200. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can click on the "Anonymous Tip" logo at the top of our website.

Countless lives have been shattered or lost due to the poor decisions of those who get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, while intoxicated.
