Coachella, CA. Injuries Follow DUI Crash at Grapefruit Boulevard and Avenue 54
Coachella, CA. (July 3, 2018) – One man has been arrested for driving under the influence after a car crash that took place Monday night at the intersection of Grapefruit Boulevard and Avenue 54. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reported that 40-year-old Alejandro Ruvalcaba of Coachella was arrested for allegedly causing the crash that occurred at approximately 6:28 p.m. and resulted in injuries.
The Coachella Police Department initially responded to the crash by sending deputies to the intersection where it occurred. According to reports, a brown Nissan Frontier was heading north on Grapefruit Boulevard when it veered into the southbound lane. The Frontier then reportedly crashed into a white Honda sedan. The person driving the Honda was injured during the collision and paramedics had to promptly rush the victim to a local hospital to be treated for moderate injuries.
Ruvalcaba was immediately arrested for DUI after the accident. The suspect had to be taken to a local hospital first for medical clearance but was swiftly booked into Riverside County Jail afterward.
We would like to offer our greatest hopes for a full recovery to the victim of this unfortunate accident.

With little to no need for an investigation, Ruvalcaba will most likely be held liable for this accident. Expensive hospital bills, future medical costs, property damage, and loss of wages all go right along with the fact that DUI accidents are the most avoidable types of crashes if the suspect would have simply exercised better judgment. For these reasons, most victims of a DUI accident will pursue a serious personal injury claim against the negligent driver.
We certainly take pride in holding negligent and criminal drivers accountable for their actions and the pain they cause. However, it is solely up to the victim to decide if they wish to go through with a claim for compensation.
