The Indio Police Department is asking for members of the community to come forward with information on a seven-vehicle crash that injured five people over the weekend.

The crash happened on Saturday, Nov. 27 at approximately 5:34 p.m. on Clinton Street and Miles Avenue.

Police say the crash started when a red 2011 Ford F-250 ran a red light and struck a sport utility vehicle broadside. The F-250 then flipped over and struck several other vehicles.

According to CAL FIRE, two people suffered serious injuries, one person sustained moderate injuries, and the other two suffered minor injuries.

The driver, a 25-year-old man, was arrested for DUI after being released from the hospital the following day, said Indio PD's Ben Guitron. He has not been charged yet but faces five counts of reckless driving causing great bodily injury. He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 1.

On Tuesday, Indio Police put a call out that investigators are seeking any information regarding the driving actions of the F-250 both prior to and during the collision.

If you have any information that could assist in this investigation, please contact Indio Police Officer Custic at 760-391-4057.
