A Woodland teen faces felony drunken-driving charges following a crash Wednesday evening that injured six people north of Woodland, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Tyler James Cearley, 18, was driving a Dodge Durango that rear-ended a Ford Windstar on southbound County Road 102 north of Road 17, causing the Ford to veer to the left and collide with a Honda Accord that was attempting to pass both vehicles, CHP Officer Bryan Konvalin said.
Six people sustained minor injuries in the 6:40 p.m. crash, and four of them — including Cearley — were taken to the UC Davis Medical Center for treatment. Konvalin said Cearley showed signs of intoxication at the scene and was arrested, but released to the hospital pending his recovery.
The CHP will file a request for felony DUI charges against Cearley with the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, Konvalin said.
