Off-Duty Officer Charged in DUI Crash with Police Vehicle on 80 Freeway in Fairfield

 
FAIRFIELD, CA (February 19, 2024) — An off-duty officer was arrested in a DUI crash involving a patrol car on the 80 Freeway near Manuel Campos Parkway.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the DUI accident happened around 3:00 a.m. Saturday. For DUI reasons, an off-duty Oakland police officer in a Tesla crashed into a CHP cruiser stopped in the slow lane at the scene of a separate crash.
 
Subsequently, paramedics responded and took the officer in the cruiser to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Another officer standing outside of the cruiser evaded harm, fortunately. However, the driver in the Tesla, later described as an off-duty Oakland police officer, was arrested for DUI.
 
Information surrounding the officer’s name or other factors leading to the crash was unavailable. However, an investigation into these details should confirm any outstanding information.
 
Thousands of car accidents occur due to alcohol and drugs. To avoid causing a crash, drive sober. Focus your attention on the road. Because alcohol and drugs can affect your mental state and concentration, it is best to have someone sober take you home. Avoid drinking and driving at all costs. Instead, schedule an Uber or Lyft ride.
