A San Francisco man was arrested on suspicion of DUI after his pickup was hit by another truck Thursday night in unincorporated Sonoma County, the California Highway Patrol said.

Robert James Clemens, 63, of San Francisco, was driving a 2006 Nissan pickup at Daywalt Road and state Highway 116 west of Rohnert Park around 8:10 p.m. Thursday, CHP Officer Jon Sloat said.

The Nissan was struck on the driver’s side by a 1996 Ford F-350 that was towing a shed, the CHP said.

Clemens suffered severe injuries in the collision and was taken by CHP helicopter to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, Sloat said.

The CHP contacted Clemens at the hospital and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. The CHP obtained a blood sample and arrested Clemens for DUI. He was released to the hospital for treatment, Sloat said.

The driver of the Ford truck, Eric Kindseth, 39, of Sebastopol, was not injured.
