Ir was also noted in the piece that Coffin has a prior DUI conviction, that having occurred in 2010.
Notably, while the article stated that "investigators believed alcohol was a factor in the collision," nothing was said about results from a sample that would show what the blood level was. A court date, evidently, has not been set.
Sunday, 1 March: 4:30 p.m. As thought below, the Champion did have a short article in its latest weekly edition dated yesterday concerning the fatal car crash on Carbon Canyon Road just east of Canyon Hills Road. Here's the text from the paper:
Carbon Canyon fatal collision
Tammy Mae Seagraves of Chino Hills died Thursday night after her northbound Honda Civic was struck head on by a southbound car about 6:50 p.m. on Carbon Canyon Road approaching Canyon Hills Road, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Ms. Seagraves, 43, died shortly after arrival at a hospital in Chino Valley. Deputies said Ms. Seagraves’ vehicle collided with a southbound Saturn Ion driven by James Price Coffin, 30.
Mr. Coffin’s vehicle crossed the double yellow center line, according to the report. He was thrown from his car and was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton with non-life threatening injuries.
Mr. Coffin’s city of residence was not available. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision, according to the sheriff’s report. Anyone with information may contact Deputy P. Ortiz or Deputy N. Clark, 387-3545.
