Two hurt in suspected DUI rollover
Two men sustained major injuries in a rollover collision Friday morning.
Jason Shaughnessy, 21, of El Dorado Hills, was driving a 2000 Suburu Outback southbound on Salmon Falls Road north of Falcon Crest at approximately 8:26 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle, a CHP press release stated. The vehicle traveled off the east side of the road, rolling two or three times before coming to a rest on its wheels about 60 feet down a steep dirt embankment.
There were four passengers with Shaughnessy in the vehicle. The left rear passenger was transported to Marshall Hospital with major injuries. The right rear passenger, who was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected as the car rolled, was transported via life flight to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The two remaining passengers did not complain of injuries.
Shaughnessy was subsequently arrested on suspicion of DUI. He was released from jail on $25,000 bail.
