Drunk Driving and Speeding Factors in Indio Multi-Vehicle Crash

Drunk driving and speeding are to blame for a multi-vehicle crash that injured 14 people in Indio Monday night. Indio police say the driver of a Ford Explorer was traveling south on Monroe Street at a high rate of speed when he collided with multiple vehicles near Avenue 48.

The driver, 48-year-old Juan Gomez, sideswiped a Toyota Camry, then rear-ended a Nissan SUV that was stopped at the light. The impact caused the Nissan to crash into a Honda SUV also stopped at the light.

The crash occurred around 6:45 p.m. Fourteen people were injured, 10 of whom were hospitalized. Four of the victims, including one child, were critically injured.

Police have arrested Gomez for driving under the influence. The intersection was shut down for several hours during the investigation. Anyone with information about the crash should contact Indio police at (760) 391-4057.

“We hope all these victims recover swiftly,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
