Early morning traffic collision results in felony arrest of Juvenile Male.

On March 7, 2019 at approximately 7:43 am Lakeport Police Officers were dispatched to a traffic accident, involving two vehicles, at the intersection of Armstrong Street and S. Estep Street. Officers arrived within seconds and observed a bus, belonging to People Service Inc., occupied by eight passengers, involved in the collision.  A second vehicle, driven by a Kelseyville juvenile, age 17, was also involved in the collision. Through the course of the investigation, officers learned the bus was traveling East on Armstrong Street and as it entered the intersection with S. Estep Street, it was struck by the male juvenile’s vehicle, which ran the stop sign at Armstrong Street,  as he was traveling on S. Estep Street.  As a result of the collision, three of the passengers on the bus received non-life threatening injuries and were treated and released at scene by Lakeport Fire Personnel.  While at the scene, officers determined the male juvenile was displaying signs of intoxication.  Officers conducted a series of Field Sobriety Tests and determined the male juvenile was three times over the legal limit, which is .08% BAC, the Blood Alcohol Content for adults.  Officers subsequently arrested him for Felony driving while under the Influence and causing injury. 
The male juvenile was transported to the Lake County Probation Department where he was booked.
