Coachella Taxi Driver Crashes After Driving in Wrong Lane

A taxi driver was arrested for driving under the influence early Sunday morning. Coachella police officers responded to a single-vehicle crash on Vine Avenue near 5th Street around 1:35 a.m.

Police determined the taxi driver, 56-year-old Cesar Silva of Coachella, was driving the wrong way on southbound Vine Avenue when he crashed into some landscaping. Silva was arrested for public intoxication and booked at the Indio jail. Police say he will also be charged with driving under the influence.

The taxi was not carrying passengers at the time of the crash, and the driver did not report any injuries. Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call the Coachella Police Department at (760) 863-8990.

“Coachella Valley residents should expect safe transportation when they call a cab. There’s no excuse for this type of behavior from a taxi driver,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
