Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 4-Apr-2011

A head-on crash has resulted in two major injuries and a driver being arrested for felony driving under the influence.

According to KSBY, Fullerton resident Faustino Barcenas, 49, was driving west on Highway 46 when he drifted into the eastbound lane. A driver, Pablo Elgarrista, was traveling eastbound when he saw Barcenas drifting and immediately pulled over to avoid being hit; Barcenas did hit Elgarrista’s vehicle’s left side but continued driving where he eventually caused a severe head-on collision with 3.7 year old Maria DeJesus Garcia of Fresno. Both drivers’s had to be extricated from their vehicles and both were taken to hospitals for surgery. Faustino Barcenas was arrested for felony DUI due to the severe injuries that Garcia sustained.
