Drunk driving suspected in head-on Coachella crash

Two motorists, one reportedly driving drunk, suffered major injuries in a head-on crash in Coachella, a police sergeant said Sunday.

Stefan Thomas Keen, a 53-year-old resident of Santa Monica driving a red Ford Focus, allowed the northbound car to veer into oncoming traffic on Enterprise Way and strike a southbound blue Acura 3.2L, said Coachella police Sgt. Jessica Vanderhoof.

Vanderhoof said police were dispatched to the scene at Enterprise Way and Avenue 54 at 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

“Due to Keen’s injuries, charges will be filed out of custody,” the police sergeant said.

There was no other immediate information.

Coachella police asked anyone with information regarding the crash to call them at (760) 863-8990.
