According to police, two juveniles who were traveling in the bed of the pickup were ejected and received major injuries. They were both life flighted to Madera Children's Hospital. A third juvenile was traveling unrestrained in the rear seat of the pickup and received moderate injuries.

De La Rosa was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and was booked into the Kern County Jail
