Rural crash leads to felony DUI arrest

By From page A2 | June 12, 2014

A Davis man is facing felony drunken-driving charges in the wake of a Monday night crash on County Road 99 that injured a Woodland father and son, the California Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

Officers reported that 65-year-old Alan E. Brooker was at the wheel of a southbound 2014 Bentley CT that drifted into the northbound lane near County Road 25A, colliding with the rear left side of an oncoming Ford truck at about 8:45 p.m.

The impact caused the Ford to veer out of control and roll over, resulting in minor injuries to driver Rafael De Los Santos, 47, and his 16-year-old passenger, Ivan De Los Santos, CHP Officer Bryan Konvalin said.

Brooker, who traveled another quarter-mile before stopping his vehicle, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, Konvalin said.

He was medically cleared at Woodland Memorial Hospital before being lodged at the Yolo County Jail, but has since posted bail and was no longer in custody as of Wednesday.
