3 INJURED IN SUSPECTED DUI CRASH IN YUCCA VALLEY TUESDAY MORNING

A suspected drunk driver is believed to be responsible for a multi-vehicle crash that sent three people to the hospital Tuesday morning. About 9:30 a.m., Thomas Vincent, 42, of Yucca Valley, was driving a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 pick-up truck on Old Woman Springs Road in Yucca Valley when he drove into opposing lanes of traffic just south of Buena Suerte Drive and collided with a white Ford F-250 pick-up truck. A motorhome was also struck during the collision. Vincent and two occupants of the F-250 sustained serious injuries and were taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs. Highway 247 was closed for several hours during the investigation, and deputies say DUI is a possible factor in the crash.
