A San Jose teenager has been arrested for a felony DUI after causing a one-vehicle accident mid Friday afternoon.

According to Mercury News, the 15-year-old was driving a 2004 Lexus RX330 on State Road 156 when he drove onto the shoulder and hit a fence.   The teenager, whose name is not being released because he is a minor, was not injured; however, 49-year-old Steven Gonzales, the teen's passenger and owner of an unnamed marijuana dispensary in San Jose, broke both of his legs as a result of the accident.  

Gonzales was taken to the hospital where he was later arrested for illegally possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia at the time of the crash as well as being under the influence of drugs. The teen was arrested for felony DUI and was taken to juvenile hall.
