Felony DUI Arrest in Angels Camp

    Shortly after 0200 hours, 10/21/12, an Angels Camp Police Department officer was in the parking lot of the police department when he heard a loud motor vehicle collision,

near the intersection of state highways 4 and 49.
    As the officer responded to that location, he observed two vehicles with significant damage driving south on SR 49.
     He followed the two vehicles, which ended up turning onto Demarest Street and then into the parking lot of Mike's Pizza where they finally stopped.
     Both of the vehicles were determined to have been involved in a collision near the previously mentioned intersection.
    The driver of one of the vehicles, Lucky Rance Marcum, a 26-year-old Tuolumne resident, was determined to be driving under the influence of alcohol and was arrested at the scene.
     His passenger, a 27-year-old Ridgecrest, CA resident, complained of pain to his back, shoulders, arms and neck, and was transported by ambulance to Mark Twain St. Joseph's Hospital.
     The collision is still under investigation. Per statements provided by the occupants of the second vehicle, they were driving south on SR 49 when the vehicle Marcum was driving turned from eastbound SR 4 onto southbound SR 49, and collided with their vehicle.
      After the collision Marcum attempted to leave the area and was followed by the occupants of the second vehicle until police arrived.
     No injuries were reported on scene by the occupants of the second vehicle.
     Marcum was booked on felony charges related to driving under the influence where injuries occurred, and possession of a controlled substance.
