Murphys, CA– A man who suffered major injuries in a vehicle accident yesterday was also arrested for DUI.

The CHP reports that at around 4:36 pm, 65-year-old Ronald Lake was traveling eastbound on Murphys Grade Road east of Canyon Drive. He reportedly lost control of his pickup truck, drove off the roadway and down an embankment.
