Injuries and Arrest For Driver

Sponsored by:

Serious injuries and arrest for DUI after a Sacramento man flipped his Chevy Suburban on O´Byrnes Ferry Road yesterday afternoon.

The California Highway Patrol says 59 year-old Antonio Fernandez was headed north on O´byrnes near the prison when he swerved across the roadway several times, and hit a guardrail. As the Suburban began to roll over, Fernandez was ejected from the truck, landing 30 feet down an embankment.

He was flown to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto with broken ribs and a collapsed lung. He was later arrested at the hospital by CHP officers for suspicion of drunk driving.
