Three Rancho Cucamonga teens struck by alleged drunk driver

Three Rancho Cucamonga high school students were injured Wednesday when a suspected drunk driver lost control of his vehicle and hit the girls as they walked on a sidewalk near the campus, law enforcement officials said.

Authorities said Cory Holker, 29, lost control of his Toyota Camry as he attempted to pass a slower vehicle near Alta Loma High School. His car jumped a curb and struck a tree. The rear of his car then spun around, hitting the three 16-year-olds, according to a statement from the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department. 

All three suffered injuries -- one girl had a broken leg -- and were taken to area hospitals, authorities said. The girls are expected to recover from their injuries.

Holker, of Rancho Cucamonga, was arrested and booked on suspicion of felony drunk driving with injury, according to the statement.
