CHP Report Pending on Crash that Retired Riverside Police Chief

Hallucinating Man Crashes Head-On, Stabs Driver

A Southern California man undergoing detoxification from pain medicines apparently was hallucinating when he crashed his car head-on into an oncoming vehicle at noon Sunday in unincorporated French Valley and proceeded to attack the other driver, according to sergeant Jon Wade of the Riverside County Sheriff’s department. Police investigators claim that after impact, 38-year-old Garrie Aspengren, Jr. got out of his vehicle and stabbed the other driver with a cordless drill before using it to stab himself in the neck. Aspengren was not seriously injured, and as he bled from his neck wounds nearby residents were able to restrain him. The other driver received hospital treatment for injuries that resulted from both the collision and stabbing. A mental evaluation hold was placed on Aspengren and it is anticipated that he will be booked to investigate the alleged assault with a deadly weapon. A message was left at a listing for Aspengren seeking comments.
