According to reports by criminal defense attorneys in Los Angeles a woman identified as 34-year-old Jennifer Camara a resident of Pomona struck a paramedic unit Friday night after making an illegal u-turn to avoid a DUI check point.
Camara was driving a Toyata Camry and the accident occurred at approximately 11:34 p.m. in the vicinity north of the Garey Avenue and West Pearl Street checkpoint according to Stg. Patrick O’Malley of the Pomona Police.
O’Malley stated that Camara then led officers on a two mile chase through residential neighborhoods. At the intersection of White Avenue and Chester Place she ran a stop sign causing her to collide with a Los Angeles Paramedic unit on its way to an emergency call.
After the collision Cemara was treated by paramedics and then arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, driving with a suspended California drivers license and evading a police officer.
Officer O’Malley also stated that the paramedics were moderately injured during the collision.
There were approximately 3,464 vehicles stopped at the checkpoint resulting 106 vehicles being impounded, two arrests on suspicion of driving under the influence and one for a traffic warrant. Looks like this DUI created a job for personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles.
