A 60 year old Grass Valley man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after causing a head-on collision.

According to The Union, Patrick Anderson was driving his Nissan pickup truck on the northbound Highway 174 when he crossed the double-yellow center line, directly in front of a jeep.   The jeep driver, 67-year-old Bill Durant, tried to brake but could not avoid the accident and was taken to a local hospital with moderate injuries. Anderson, however, was flown by helicopter to a hospital where he is listed in critical condition and is being charged with a California DUI and causing bodily injury.
