Francisco Fernandez, 20, has been charged with vehicular assault, a class 4 felony, and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, reckless endangerment, driving under the influence, DUI per se and driving under suspension after a March 30 accident which injured the five occupants of his car.
The accident occurred about 1:20 a.m., when Fernandez failed to negotiate the curve at the south end of Pioneer Drive.
His vehicle left the roadway and ended up nose down in a ravine on the south side of Pioneer. Speed and alcohol are both believed to be factors in the accident.
Fernandez was arrested last week and released when he posted $25,000 bond.blog comments powered by Disqus
