Shortly after 11 a.m., Neil McKinnon, 27, failed to slow down and slammed into the back of a Kia transporting the couple from Upland. The Kia rolled off the road before landing on its roof trapping the couple inside.
Responders extricated the couple from the vehicle and transported them to the hospital.
Officers arrested McKinnon on charges of felony DUI causing bodily injury, driving with a BAC of .10 or higher and disobeying a court order, according to the county sheriff’s office website.
His bail is set at $100,000.
