A woman was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence after being involved in a five-vehicle crash, authorities said Sunday.

The crash was reported around 12:15 p.m. Saturday on Scott Road near Daily Road. The five vehicles were a Tesla sedan, Toyota sedan, Ford SUV, Kia sedan and a Jeep Wrangler. According to the Menifee Police Department, all the vehicles sustained major damage and multiple occupants of the vehicles suffered injuries.

The drivers of the Ford and Jeep were taken to a hospital where they remain in critical condition, police said. Occupants of the Toyota appeared to have suffered minor injuries, but were also taken to a hospital out of an abundance of caution.

Uninvolved witnesses reported seeing the Tesla traveling east on Scott Road in an erratic manner. The woman driving the Tesla was evaluated for impairment and was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance, police said.

The crash is still under investigation. Anyone with additional information about the accident was encouraged to contact the Menifee PD Traffic Unit at 951-723-1690 or 951-723-1565.
