CHP: Alcohol to blame for rural crash

By From page A2 | April 23, 2013

A Dixon man faces felony drunk driving charges following a Sunday-morning crash that injured both him and his passenger, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Cyle W. Harris, 20, was driving a Toyota Camry southbound on County Road 106 west of Road 36 when “when due to his level of intoxication he made an unsafe turning movement, causing the car to leave the roadway and roll over in a field,” CHP Officer Cindy Leal said. The crash occurred at about 12:45 a.m.

The Davis Fire Department reported that Harris was thrown from the car, while his passenger, 28-year-old Debra Akins of Dixon, had to be extricated from the wreckage.

Both were transported to the UC Davis Medical Center — Akins with a broken right leg and Harris with pain to his left hip and leg, Leal said.
