Injured Man Tries to Flee DUI Accident Scene

A man who appeared to be extremely intoxicated was recently arrested after he got involved in a single vehicle rollover crash recently near Highway 29.

Reports show that 34-year-old Robert Harvey of Pinole tried to climb an embankment before rescuers arrived at the scene despite the fact that he incurred moderate injuries from the crash. He was later brought to Queen of the Valley Medical Center for treatments.

Harvey was released but is expected to appear in court.

Intoxication can really cloud or impair one’s good judgment. Instead of having himself checked, Harvey tried to escape the scene though he was hurt. After having a couple of drinks, it is always best to just take a cab or have someone sober drive you home to prevent accidents like this that can also lead to fatalities and massive property damages.
