Uber Driver Suspected of DUI After Slamming Into Party Bus in San Diego

An Uber driver was facing DUI and resisting arrest charges Thursday after driving through a red light and slamming into a party bus in downtown San Diego, police said.


The crash took place just before midnight Wednesday near the intersection of Sixth Avenue and F Street, said Lt. Dan Smyth with the San Diego Police Department.

The Uber driver was traveling south on Sixth Avenue when he ran a red light at F Street and rear ended the back of a parked bus, witnesses told Smyth.

The bus, described as a “large party bus” by Smyth, was not badly wrecked but sustained some damage to the rear.

“Fortunately the bus was empty other than the driver,” Smyth said.

Video from the scene showed the damaged car had an Uber sticker attached to the front windshield.
