A 23-year-old Danville man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after he hit a tow truck early this morning, injuring himself and the truck operator, the California Highway Patrol said.
A tow truck operator was tending to a vehicle parked on the shoulder of southbound Interstate 680 north of Diablo Road about 1 a.m. when a Toyota 4Runner crashed into the back of his truck, said Officer Tom Maguire.
The driver, identified as Kevin Dubrall, suffered a cut to his head and an abrasion to his arm, and the tow truck operator suffered a back injury, Maguire said. The operator was outside his truck when the crash occurred, but it was not clear how he was injured.
Both men were taken to local hospitals. Dubrall was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI before being released to the hospital, Maguire said.
