REDDING, Calif. -

A Redding man is allegedly at fault for a double vehicle rollover crash in Shasta County late Friday night.

Richard Kingsbury, 30, was driving a Dodge Avenger westbound on Hartnell Ave. when he ran the red light at the Churn Creek Rd. intersection, according to the Redding Police Department. He collided with a Toyota 4Runner going northbound around 11:00 p.m.

The crash caused both vehicles to flip and land upside down.

Police said Kingsbury was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Kingsbury suffered minor injuries. His 24-year-old passenger suffered lacerations to her hand and a broken foot. They were both taken to the hospital.

The Toyota’s driver was an unlicensed 15-year-old girl from Redding, according to police. Her passenger was a 14-year-old boy from Redding. They both suffered minor to moderate injuries. The boy was taken to Mercy Medical Center for evaluation.

Kingsbury was booked into the Shasta County Jail on multiple felony DUI charges.

All four of the parties involved in this collision were wearing their seat belts and the airbags deployed in both cars.
