A 28-year-old Manteca man reportedly drove his 1994, S-10 pickup truck into the crime scene of Thursday night’s fatal truck-motorcycle crash at the corner of Yosemite and El Portal avenues.

Manteca Police public information officer Jason Hensley said that Brandon Tolbert was arrested for driving under the influence after narrowly missing officers who were investigating the scene of the collision in the middle of Yosemite Avenue.

The officer said Tolbert drove his car through the yellow tape and was quickly arrested at the scene.  He was booked at the Manteca city jail where he was kept until he was able to safely operate his vehicle, police said.

He was cited for DUI and was issued a citation to appear in court on the charge.
