A single-vehicle crash that happened on Dinah Shore in Palm Springs Thursday afternoon left one firefighter assaulted and the passenger in police custody.

Police say a woman was driving east on Dinah Shore near Crossley Road when she lost control, drove into the median and struck a tree. The crash happened around 1 p.m. The driver was moderately injured, and Palm Springs Fire Department (PSFD) officials arrived to render aid. However, the passenger in the vehicle was uncooperative and pushed one of the firefighters while he was assisting the driver. The passenger was arrested for battery and taken to Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility.

The single-vehicle crash remains under investigation. It is unclear whether drugs or alcohol were involved, but speed was likely a factor.

“If you are involved in a crash, always cooperate with authorities and first responders. These people are trained to assist you in an emergency,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
