Two suspected DUI accidents injure four people on North Whidbey
Four people were injured in two suspected DUI accidents in the Oak Harbor area over the last two days, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Monday night, 43-year-old Coupeville resident Ruben Barajasmares was driving a 2004 Nissan pickup east on Ault Field Drive when the car spun out of control and struck a telephone pole near the intersection with Summit Boulevard, the State Patrol reported.
Passengers Juan Barajasmares, 26, and Lorenzo Jiemenez, 54, were both injured and transported to Whidbey General Hospital for treatment. They are both Oak Harbor residents.
The driver and another passenger, 26-year-old Francisco Chavezrodriguez, of Coupeville, were not injured.
The State Patrol reported that the cause of the accident was "driving under the influence" and that Ruben Barajasmares was arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault.
The pickup was totalled.
On Tuesday at about 4:50 p.m., a two-car, head-on accident occurred on State Highway 20 near the intersection with Fakkema Road.
The State Patrol reported that 25-year-old Stephanie Selby of Oak Harbor was driving a 2009 Jeep Wrangler south on the highway and crossed the centerline into the oncoming land.
Selby's Jeep struck a northbound 2006 Chevrolet Equinox driven by 26-year-old Rochelle Ward of Oak Harbor.
Ward was seriously injured and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center and Hospital in Seattle for treatment.
Selby was also injured and transported to Whidbey General Hospital.
The State Patrol reported that drugs or alcohol may have been a factor in the accident and that possible charges are pending.
Both vehicles were totalled.
