California DUI for driver of head-on with big rig

California Drunk Driving Lawyers report that a driver of a sedan involved in a head-on collision with a big rig truck Sunday is expected to recover from his injuries. California DUI lawyers hope for a speedy recovery.

The 41-year-old San Jose man also received a citation for suspicion of California DUI - driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to California dui lawyers, the man was eastbound on Highway 152 Sunday evening in a 2007 Hyundai when he crossed into oncoming traffic and smashed head-on into a Freightliner big rig truck.

The man was ejected from the vehicle and suffered a major head injury. He was flown by CALSTAR helicopter to a Bay Area hospital, where he's in serious condition, for brain trauma treatment, according to California DUI attorneys.

The driver and passenger of the big rig were uninjured. Their truck carrying frozen chicken, however, burst into flames after the impact - setting a small hill on fire as well as stopping traffic for eight hours while it was extinguished and the mess was cleaned up, per California Drunk Driving attorneys.

Armstrong said California DUI officers suspected the man was drunk and cited him at the scene before releasing him to the hospital. He will face the California DUI allegation in Santa Clara County Superior Court.
