Both of the vehicles, a patrol car and a pickup truck were occupied at the time of impact. The female deputy in the patrol car sustained minor injuries as a result of the collision,  the deputy also reported that she was standing outside of her vehicle right at the point of impact, just minutes before the collision.

Zambrano and Ontario resident, Alexis Garcia, 19 were transported by ambulance for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Zambrano was later arrested for Driving Under the Influence.

Mojave drive was closed in both directions from ¼ east of Hwy. 395 to just east of Onyx Road. The closure will remain for several hours for the M.A.I.T. investigation. Information will be updated as it is received.
