CHP officer OK, passenger critical after Highway 1 collision

APTOS -- A California Highway Patrol officer suffered only minor injuries when an allegedly drunk driver smashed into his patrol car parked on the shoulder of Highway 1 near State Park Drive late Sunday.
Officer Ian Troxell suffered a minor head injury and was treated at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz but was released before midnight Sunday.
A passenger in the other vehicle, Darlene Mary Pentimone, 24, of Watsonville, was in serious condition Monday at San Jose Medical Center. CHP spokesman Blake Schnabel said she was on a life-support system and was suffering from abdominal injuries, a broken arm and a possibly fractured pelvis.
The driver, Jonathan L. Rausch, 20, of Watsonville and New York, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail. His bail was set at $200,000.
The accident occurred about 9 p.m. Sunday.
The CHP said officer Troxell was parked on the shoulder after stopping to give a warning to another motorist, who had pulled over to use a cell phone.
After telling the man to move on, Troxell got back in his cruiser, put his seat belt on and was preparing to write a report when his patrol car was rear-ended by the other car.
After the collision, Troxell was still able to radio for ambulances.
Schnabel said the CHP advises freeway drivers needing to use cell phones to get off the freeway entirely, not just pull onto the shoulder.
"We're asking people to drive further and get to an off-ramp," Schnabel said. "We can't have non-emergency stops on our freeways. Its unsafe for us and every time we do that we take a risk."
For the CHP, Sunday's accident was a reminder of the January 1998 death of CHP officer Scott Greenly. He was killed when Peter Martin Wieland of Santa Cruz swerved and hit him along Highway 85 in Campbell while Greenly was ticketing another driver. Wieland's homicide trial is continuing in Santa Clara County Superior Court.

CORRALITOS — Two men were killed and two others critically injured Thursday night when a car slammed into a tree and rolled into a gully off Mount Madonna Road.
Witnesses said the 1966 black Ford Mustang was speeding south on the winding rural road about 9 p.m. when it struck a tree and ended up in a ditch about 10 feet off the road, according to officer A.B. Blain of the California Highway Patrol.
One of the four men in the car was thrown from the vehicle.
The dead were described as being in their late 20s or early 30s. Neither was from the area, Blain said.
Injured in the wreck was Eric Peterson, 31, of Watsonville and John Vereeke, 33, of West Bloomfield, Mich., according to Blain. Both were taken by CalStar air ambulance to San Jose Medical Center.
All the men were from a drug-rehabilitation center on nearby Gaffey Road, Blain said. There were no immediate signs alcohol played a role, he added.
The accident occurred at Valley View Road near Mount Madonna County
