Pleasanton police investigate serious collision on West Las Positas, near site of recent fatality

Driver arrested on suspicion of DUI on Friday evening

Multiple people sustained severe injuries in an apparent DUI collision on West Las Positas Boulevard over the Thanksgiving weekend, less than a quarter mile away from the site of a fatal crash on the same Pleasanton thoroughfare earlier in the month.

The investigation was still unfolding, but Pleasanton police Lt. Erik Silacci reported that police responded to the scene of a multi-vehicle collision around 6:50 p.m. Friday in the westbound lanes of West Las Positas Boulevard at the Willow Road intersection.

"One vehicle was overturned and several parties were transported to Eden Hospital with severe injuries," Silacci told the Weekly over the weekend. "One of the drivers, a female adult Pleasanton resident, was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Our traffic unit responded and the incident is under investigation."

Details about the number of seriously injured people, as well as about how the crash occurred, were unavailable as of Sunday evening, according to Silacci. The identity of the arrestee has not been released to date.

The lighted intersection at Willow Road is located less than a quarter mile from the spot on westbound West Las Positas Boulevard where a solo-vehicle rollover crash on the night of Nov. 4 killed 23-year-old Pleasanton resident Melanie Mouat.
