Milton Hoaglen Arrested After Major Injury Crash on Hill Road in Covelo

Covelo, California – 25-year-old Milton Hoaglen was arrested following a DUI crash that left at

least six people injured Saturday morning.

Hoaglen was driving a 2016 Mazda CX5 when he went off the roadway and crashed into a big oak tree.

The impact of the crash caused the CX5 to burst into flames.

The California Highway Patrol said the crash was reported at around 1:45 a.m. on Hill Road just east of Dobie Lane in Covelo.

Police said neighbors helped rescue six people, including four kids trapped inside the burning car.

Several emergency crews responded to the crash and transported all occupants to various hospitals in northern California with moderate-to-major injuries.

CHP said Hoaglen was taken to Howard Memorial Hospital and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, causing injury.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
