Suspected DUI Driver Crashes Into Lake Elsinore Power Pole, Down Ravine

A Wildomar man is suspected was driving on Railroad Canyon Road in a Honda Civic when he crashed near Church Road, police said.

A suspected drunk driver lost control of his sedan, slammed it into a power pole and caused the pole to buckle at its base Saturday in Lake Elsinore.

The driver, Adrian Rene Quesada, 19, of Wildomar, was driving on Railroad Canyon Road in a Honda Civic when he crashed near Church Road, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. David Cardoza said. The impact caused Quesada's car to veer down the road and careen into a ravine, but he climbed out uninjured.

The crash was reported at 12:45 a.m., and it forced the closure of Railroad Canyon Road between Church Road and Summerhill Drive. Southern California Edison crews worked to replace the unstable power pole, but the lines did not fall and there was no outage, SCE spokeswoman Maureen Brown said.

Work crews were expected to remain at the repair site until 3 p.m., Brown said.

Quesada was "detained" by sheriff's authorities in connection with the crash, and alcohol consumption appeared to be a factor, Cardoza said. A report about the crash will be submitted to the Riverside County District Attorney's Office for prosecution, the sergeant said.

Ha ChrisG you smart arse. Well I hope he gets hit by a telephone pole and it knocks some goddamn sense into his stupid drunk head. Drunk driving at 19 and he should be kissing the ground he is walking on that he didnt kill someone (s) or himself, not that THAT would have been a great loss for someone who will probably go on to commit many more DUI's. Eventually one of them will end up with dead innocent bodies strewn all over one of our streets. He wont serve a day in jail, his parents bailed him out post haste I am sure and hugged and said, poobracito 9 million times because he was alive. I am not going to say any of my kids were angels drinking at 19 but they sure as hell made sure they had a designated driver, just as they still do into their 20s to 30s. It should be AUTOMATIC.
