Bay Area Resident Arrested On DUI And Hit-And-Run Charges

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — At 12:15 this morning 62 year old James Tuohig of Aptos was arrested for DUI along with hit-and-run.

Tuohig was headed to the Bay Area from the Copperopolis area when, due to his level of intoxication, he turned onto Rock Creek Rd. and headed north.

In the 3200 block he lost control of his vehicle colliding with a fence, a trash dumpster and an antique gas pump. He then fled the scene only to run a stop sign at Felix Drive and crash into a second fence and some boulders.

His 2005 Ford Ranger rolled onto its left side. He was arrested at the scene and later treated for minor injuries.
