Naples, FL (May 1, 2019) - A four-vehicle crash left several people injured on Tuesday, April 30th. The accident happened on Immokalee Road around 6:45 p.m.
Deputies with the Collier County Sheriff's Office arrived on-scene shortly after the collision. According to reports, 36-year-old Clayton Diltz caused the crash to take place. The exact details surrounding how the accident occurred were not available. Diltz was hospitalized following the crash.

Following an investigation, police arrested Diltz and he was charged with DUI after it was determined that he was impaired at the time of the crash.
In 2016, there were over 5,000 confirmed DUI-related fatal crashes. In addition, there were many more DUI crashes that were not fatal but involved injuries to one or more people. Whether it is related to drugs or whether it is related to alcohol, DUI crashes and DUI drivers continue to plague the streets and highways of Florida.
A DUI crash unfortunately often has serious consequences. An impaired driver has a slowed reaction time and therefore many crashes with impaired drivers occur at high speeds, causing devastating damage and injuries. A DUI crash has the potential to change the life of an innocent victim forever.
