DUI Crash on Clipper Creek Road

An accident on a private road off of Banner Mountain sent a young boy to the hospital and the driver of the vehicle facing charges of DUI. CHP officer Jeff Pingree says 31 year old Sean Leonard Carstens was driving southbound on Clipper Creek Road south of Wings of Morning around 11:20 Thursday morning.

“We had a Nevada City resident driving a Cadillac Escalade and ran off the road and struck a tree, suspected to be under the influence at this time. He also had a juvenile on board that was taken to the hospital to be checked out as a precaution.”

The driver was suspected of DUI, being under the influence of a controlled substance, in possession of a controlled substance prescription not in his name and injury to a minor.
