LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) — A 24-year-old Lakewood man was arrested at the scene of a two-car accident Friday night. He is suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Terry McFadden Jr.’s vehicle, a Kia sedan, collided with the right rear of a Lincoln sedan that was carrying five people.

Trevor Albrecht of the Lakewood Police Department told CBS4 that the Lincoln’s driver subsequently lost control, sending his vehicle and passengers over a guard rail and down an embankment.

At least four of the five occupants of the Lincoln were transported to hospitals, Albrecht said.

McFadden was uninjured.
