Three passengers from Teffeteller’s vehicle and two passengers from the second vehicle were transported to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. Teffeteller was also transported to the hospital and placed under arrest for suspected felony driving under the influence causing injuries and transportation of a relatively large amount of marijuana. Traffic was slow going on Highway 49 for about an hour while the accident was cleared.
