Lathrop, CA – San Joaquin County Supervisor Tom Patti Arrested Following DUI Crash on 5 Freeway

Lathrop, CA (July 27, 2018) – At least three vehicles were involved in a collision on the 5 Freeway in Lathrop Wednesday, according to a local and trustworthy news source. The crash reportedly took place on the freeway near Lathrop Road, although the precise time has not been specified at the moment.

The report filed stated that the wreck was most likely caused by an intoxicated driver. The suspected drunk driver has been identified as San Joaquin County Supervisor, Tom Patti. The initial reports stated that Patti was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe when he crashed into the back of a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The impact of the accident shoved the Oldsmobile forward, subsequently striking the rear-end of a 2011 Toyota Prius.

Injuries likely resulted during the accident. However, the number of victims and their conditions were not made clear in the report. Nevertheless, authorities stated that Patti was arrested following the crash on suspicion of DUI. There was no more information made available in regards to the crash or anyone else involved. Officials are presently investigating the collision.

We would like to extend our sympathies to anyone who may have been injured in this accident.

While the responsible party seems pretty clear, in this case, investigators will be working to make the most accurate assessment possible. The suspect is likely going to be charged with driving under the influence, which will also open up a path toward personal injury lawsuits for anyone who may have sustained injuries as a result of Patti’s negligence. However, the choice to file a claim for compensation is a very personal one that may only be made by the victim.
