Sonoma County, California – A 22-year-old Davis man was sent to the hospital with serious injuries after being involved in a head-on collision on Sunday night in Sonoma County.
The accident happened at the intersection of Highway 116, also known as Lakeville Highway, and Stage Gulch Road at around 10:23 p.m.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 37-year-old David Aspegren Jr., a resident of Ashford, Connecticut, was driving a Chevrolet Impala southbound on Highway 116 when, for unknown reasons, allowed his vehicle to cross to oncoming traffic.
The Impala then collided head-on with a Ford Focus driven north on Stage Gulch Road by the Davis man.
Following the impact of the crash, the Ford driver was pinned inside and was rescued by the emergency crew. He sustained critical injuries and was airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Aspegren was taken to Memorial Hospital by an ambulance with unspecified injuries.
He was treated and released.
CHP said Aspegren was arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs causing great bodily injury, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
