BELMONT (BCN)

An 18-year-old Alameda man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol following a roll-over collision in Belmont early Saturday morning, Belmont police said.

At about 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, police and fire units responded to a solo-car collision in the 1400 block of Ralston Avenue, near Chula Vista Drive.

Upon arrival at the scene, emergency crews found a 2011 Toyota Camry sedan on its roof in the middle of the roadway.

Three of the vehicle’s five occupants managed to get out of the overturned car prior to the arrival of emergency crews. Two occupants needed assistance from firefighters to get out of the car, police said.

The driver of the car, Saddig Jami, was treated for minor injuries at the scene before being arrested for felony driving under the influence resulting in injury and for being under 21 years of age with a blood alcohol content over .05 percent, police said.

Emergency medical personnel also treated an 18-year-old female passenger and an 20-year-old male passenger at the scene, police said.

A male and a female passenger, both 18 years old, were transported to an area hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, officers said.

According to police, all five occupants of the vehicle are students at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont and were heading back to campus.

Police said the Toyota was traveling east on Ralston Avenue when it went off the roadway, collided with a cinderblock wall and rolled over, coming to rest in the middle of the road.

According to police, the driver was the only occupant wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.
