PETALUMA, Calif. (BCN) — A Petaluma man was arrested Sunday for alleged drunken driving after crashing his car into a tree, according to Petaluma police.

Petaluma police officers and first responders with the Petaluma Fire Department responded around 5:20 a.m. to the intersection of Ely Boulevard South and Casa Grande Road, where a gray sedan had collided with a redwood tree at the intersection’s roundabout.

The vehicle had significant damage, police claim, and a female passenger remained inside, but the driver had fled on foot after the collision, according to a witness at the scene.

The female passenger was taken to a local hospital for evaluation but did not suffer serious injury. She also identified the driver as 48-year-old Daniel Bagley, according to police.

Bagley was later found at his residence with injuries consistent with a vehicle crash and showed signs of intoxication. He was medically cleared at a local hospital before being booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
