A man was seriously injured as the result of a suspected DUI crash near the Ferry Point tunnel in Point Richmond Sunday morning, police said.

At 10:12 a.m., Richmond police responded to an injury accident at Dornan and Western drives, where a motorist who had conducted a u-turn at the Ferry Point tunnel struck a passing truck, which then crashed into several parked cars, police Capt. Al Walle said.

A man who was loading items in his car was pinned between two vehicles, police said. An air ambulance landed at Washington Elementary to transport the victim to a trauma center. The victim was in serious but stable condition, and the motorist causing the accident was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Walle said.


  1. We were at the beach when we heard this happen. Can’t unhear those cries and unsee that scene. Glad the man was in stable condition. Hoping for a quick recovery to a traumatic accident <3
