A man who has been convicted of driving with a suspended license eight times since 2008 was arrested Thursday on charges stemming from two injury crashes in Pomona in less than a year, police reported.
Darryl Ursery, 46, faces charges of driving on a suspended license and being a habitual traffic offender, according to Christian Hsu of the Pomona Police Department's Traffic Services Unit.
Police say Ursery was driving with a suspended license on April 16 when he lost control of his vehicle, which collided with two others, injuring a woman and her 4-year-old son, both of whom were airlifted to a hospital.
Last August, Ursery was again driving with a suspended license when he lost control of his vehicle and injured four people, Hsu said.
"As a result of April's collision, officers from the Pomona Police Traffic Services Unit presented this case to the D.A.'s office for criminal filing," he said.
Ursery was being held at the Inmate Reception Center in downtown Los Angeles in lieu of $200,000 bail and was due in court Friday in Pomona, according to sheriff's online jail records.
