Claremont DUI checkpoint scene of four-car accident
A DUI/license checkpoint on Friday, December 18 at the intersection of Dartmouth and Foothill netted 12 arrests and was also the scene of a four-car accident. During the checkpoint, officers cited eight drivers for driving without a license, three for driving with a suspended license and one for possession of a controlled substance, according to Lt. Ciszek. While the checkpoint was taking place, a woman was reportedly not paying attention to the slowing cars in front of her and crashed into the line-up, causing a four-vehicle accident. No injuries were reported, but a child in the backseat of the car was transported to the hospital as a precaution, according to Lt. Jason Walters. The woman was driving without a license, but she was not arrested.
