Suspected drunk driver involved in crash identified

Posted: Updated:

RAMONA (CNS) - The identity of a 21-year-old man arrested for suspicion of felony drunken driving following a head-on collision that severely injured a father and daughter in San Diego Country Estates was released Saturday.

The driver, John Ryan Mantz, was treated at a hospital for injuries he sustained in the crash at San Vicente and Ramona Oaks roads at 8:17 p.m. Thursday. Following hospitalization, he was arrested and held on $100,000 bail.

Mantz was driving a Ford F-150 west on Ramona Oaks Road when he crossed into oncoming traffic striking a blue Hyundai Veloster, said CHP officer Brian Pennings.

Firefighters cut away part of the Hyundai to remove the 9-year-old girl, who was flown to Rady Children's Hospital. Her father was airlifted to Sharp Memorial Hospital in a second helicopter.

Both were treated for broken bones and numerous lacerations, Pennings said.

Mantz was taken by ambulance to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido for treatment.
