Crash caught on video, Man charged with DUI


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)-A man is arrested after his car crosses the center line and collides with on-coming traffic in Eureka and it’s all caught on video.

As you can see here, video taken by Lydia Robbins shows what appears to be a car, weaving in and out of the white lines.

Robbins begins recording from her cell phone as she passes exit 699 off Highway 101 North – and follows the car into Eureka.

You can see the car drift in to on-coming traffic…. barely missing that silver Honda you see right there – and then – plowing into – what appears to be an SUV.  

According to a social media post by the Eureka Police Department the driver of the black car was arrested for driving under the influence.

The collision caused traffic to slow – but resumed after a Good Samaritan grabbed a forklift and hauled the crashed vehicle off the roadway.

According to a social media post, bystanders helped the man who was hit get out of his vehicle.
