A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) on June 8 after his car crashed into another vehicle while going north on the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway in Westchester, injuring himself and four others.

It happened at 2:43 a.m. on June 8 at Howard Hughes Parkway, two minutes after authorities received a report of a wrong-way vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The arrested driver was identified as Matthew Fisher of Santa Monica, who suffered moderate injuries in the crash. A passenger in Fisher’s 2001 Honda, 19-year-old Santa Monica resident Tyler Raifsnider, also suffered moderate injuries, the CHP reported.

Both were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Linda Awed, 19, of Whittier, who was driving the 1992 Nissan that was struck by the Honda, and two 20-year-old passengers, Milesha Morrison of Pullman, Wash., and Fabian Rodriguez of Los Angeles were also taken to a hospital, according to the CHP.

Awed and Morrison suffered moderate injuries, officials said.

No details were available about Rodriguez’s injuries.

The CHP issued a SigAlert shutting down all lanes of the freeway at Howard Hughes Parkway following the crash.
