SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 41-year-old man was in custody Monday on suspicion of drunken driving after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 5.

Raul Hernandez was travelling northbound on I-5 just north of State Route 905 about 1:45 a.m. when his vehicle struck a Chevrolet Malibu parked on the right shoulder, California Highway Patrol officer Jesse Udovich said.

The crash caused the Malibu to overturn several times. The victim sustained minor injuries, Udovich said.

According a local news source, the driver of the Malibu had a flat tire and was waiting for assistance when he was struck. The victim, who was able to crawl out of the wreckage, suffered a cut on his head, Channel 10 reported.

Hernandez was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of drunken driving. He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the Chula Vista courthouse, according to the jail website.

Bail was set at $100,000.
