On Saturday May 22, 2021, at about 2 p.m., IPD officers responded to Lake Forest Drive and Bake Parkway for a broadside collision.
It is alleged the adult male driver and solo occupant of a two door BMW ran a red light and collided with the driver side of a 4-door BMW, occupied by two adults who were on a test drive.
The driver and passenger were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.
IPD’s Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) was called in to investigate. The driver of the two door BMW, an Irvine resident, was arrested for felony DUI.
The Irvine Police advise that we please be responsible and designate a sober driver or utilize a rideshare company to take you home if you’ve been consuming alcohol. This is another reminder that DUI drivers can be on the roads any time, day or night.
