Rollover lands Blythe man in hospital
Special to the Times


BLYTHE - A Blythe man was charged with driving under the influence after crashing his vehicle in Ripley on May 23.

California Highway Patrol-Blythe, reported that Robert Escobedo, 31, of Blythe, was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center after being arrested. He was the sole occupant of a vehicle that crashed in Ripley last week.

According to the CHP, Escobedo was driving a 2004 Toyota eastbound on 24th Ave, east of State Route 78 at an undetermined speed, when he allowed the vehicle to drift onto the north shoulder and continue up a dirt embankment where the vehicle became airborne. The car landed in an alfalfa field where it overturned multiple times.

Escobedo was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the car.

After CHP officers arrived on the scene, they noticed Escobedo was showing signs and symptoms of impairment. Escobedo sustained moderate injuries as a result of the collision and was transported to the hospital via Care Flight 8.

The accident is still under investigation, however, CHP officials said it is believed that alcohol was a key factor in the incident.

Article comment by: DUI or Injure ?

Perhaps the driver was "injured" being that his vehicle went airborne and he was thrown from it. I wasn' there but the article doesn't say he smelled of alcohol or any drugs were found. I am just thinking it's quite possible that after such trauma a person could have a difficult time walking/standing/talking whatever. No more "innocent until proven guity" Hope the diver is recovering okay.
