Creek crasher charged for fleeing collision
February 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff

Andy Lazaro

Prosecutors contend Andy James Lazaro was definitely in a creek on Super Bowl Sunday but it will be up to the courts to decide if he is without the proverbial paddle.

Lazaro, 22, is accused of drunkenly driving his pickup truck into San Mateo Creek off Fourth Avenue near Highway 101 and fleeing with an injured passenger to his parents’ home. Responding police officers found the truck in the water and a trail of blood leading into a a neighboring residential area. Lazaro showed signs of being under the influence but refused to perform a field sobriety test, according to prosecutors.

Lazaro’s 20-year-old passenger sustained a cut to his hand in the crash and both men were briefly hospitalized before Lazaro’s arrest. He is charged with felony driving while under the influence, hit and run for fleeing the scene of the collision and resisting arrest. He has pleaded not guilty and is in custody on $50,000 bail.
