SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Vehicles driven by two men allegedly under the influence of alcohol collided Sunday morning, causing serious injuries, a police officer said.

The collision occurred just after 1 a.m. at 17th and G streets, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

A 53-year-old man drove a Dodge Dakota pickup truck southbound on 17th Street in front of a 24-year-old man in an Acura Integra who was eastbound on G Street when the two vehicles collided, Stafford said.

The 53-year-old man suffered a broken back and broken ribs, the officer said. The 24-year-old man suffered fractured vertebrae and a fractured sternum.

Both were transported to trauma centers for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, he said.

The Dakota driver will be booked on suspicion of felony DUI, Stafford said. The Acura driver will be booked on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI.
