Crash in Colton on I-10 Involving Driver Suspected of DUI Kills Man

COLTON, CA (September 4, 2019) – On Monday morning, a crash on I-10 in Colton involving a driver suspected of DUI killed a man. The September 2 incident occurred on the westbound side of the freeway, near Mount Vernon Avenue and to the west of it.

Reports say a vehicle—described as a Saturn—had been stopped in the number 4 lane of the freeway. Another vehicle—described as a Jeep Wrangler—which had been going at a speed of approximately 55 miles per hour, struck the rear of the Saturn. The impact sent the Jeep rolling over.

The person who had been the driver of the Saturn suffered injuries that were described as major. Responders transported him to a local hospital. The victim died in the hospital. He was identified only as a resident of Los Angeles, 62 years old. His name has not been reported.

Ornelas was arrested on suspicion driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.

Investigators are continuing their search into the facts and gathering evidence. If anyone has information about the crash, the person should call Officer J. Duran. Duran is with the San Bernardino office of the California Highway Patrol. The number is 909-383-4247.
