Redlands police arrested three people and cited three others late Sunday and early Monday during a checkpoint targeting impaired and unlicensed drivers, the city announced Wednesday.
The three arrests were for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a city spokesman said.
"The arrests included one man who ran a red light on Redlands Boulevard at Alabama Street shortly before 11:30 p.m., crossed over into the oncoming traffic lane, hit a curb and drove over a grass parkway before hitting a second vehicle that was backing out of a parking space at a convenience store," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said.
"John Steve Hornbarger, 61, suffered minor injuries as a result of not wearing a seatbelt," Baker said. "The driver of the other vehicle was not injured."
Hornbarger, a resident of Loma Linda, was one of three arrested on suspicion of DUI, Baker said.
The checkpoint was staged from 10 p.m. Sunday May 27 to 3 a.m. Monday May 28 on westbound Redlands Boulevard between Alabama and Nevada streets.
Two drivers were cited for driving without a license during the checkpoint, Baker said. Another driver was cited for running over warning cones at the checkpoint. A total of 181 vehicles passed through the checkpoint.
Redlands police plan to conduct another DUI/Drivers License checkpoint from 10 p.m. Saturday June 2 to 3 a.m. Sunday June 3 in southbound lanes of Tennessee Street, between Park Avenue and State Street, Baker said.
Funding for checkpoints in Redlands comes in part from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
