The good intentions of two friends to see each other safely home came to no avail when one rear-ended the other and both were cited for driving under the influence.

Devon Martinez, 23, and Anna Ford, 24, had both been drinking Saturday night, according to the Turlock Police Department. Around 2:30 a.m. Sunday the pair decided to drive home in separate vehicles.

Ford came to a stop at Del’s Lane and Minnesota Avenue and was rear-ended by Martinez, the police department reported.

The accident got the attention of police officers and both Martinez and Ford were found to be intoxicated. Both were cited for driving under the influence, the police department reported.

No injuries were reported.
