Underage DUI Suspect Gives Valencia Foliage An Unwelcome Trim

khts_crime_generic20 year-old man hits trees, drives through median.

 

Some Valencia residents might have been woken up at about 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning by a surprise gardener. Santa Clarita Sheriff's officials responded to the scene of a solo vehicle accident near McBean Parkway and Decoro Dr. at that time and arrested the driver.

 

Deputies suspect that 20 year-old Jordan Turbyfill was driving while intoxicated when he began to weave along the roadway. His vehicle reportedly hit several trees on the side of McBean Parkway before crashing into a landscaped median near Fairview Dr.

 

No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and Turbyfill suffered minor injuries. He could face charges of driving under the influence of alcohol.
