HOLTVILLE — A 19-year-old El Centro man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after he was involved in a single-vehicle rollover early Saturday in which he and two other passengers were injured.
The driver, Carl McElvany, suffered major injuries in the accident, which occurred around 12:05 a.m. on Norrish Road west of Highway 115 near Holtville, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Joe McDermott said.
McElvany remained in El Centro Regional Medical Center on Saturday.
According to McDermott, the crash occurred after McElvany lost control of his pickup on Norrish when a paved section of the road turned to dirt.
McElvany, McDermott said, drove his vehicle onto an elevated dirt shoulder of the road, which struck the metal tire of a piece of heavy machinery used to level land and overturned.
