Shortly before midnight on Saturday, February 24, officers from the Union City Police Department were dispatched to a report of an injury accident involving two motorcycles near Alvarado-Niles and Decoto roads. Officers found two motorcyclists on the street, unconscious with significant injuries. Both were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
The investigation showed that a vehicle had turned in front of the riders causing the collision. The vehicleÕs driver, identified as Ruben Martin, 56, of Hayward, was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Martin was booked in at Santa Rita Jail.
As the investigation progressed, a third motorcyclist, unrelated to the earlier collision, was driving through the area. He was stopped by a patrol officer after showing symptoms of intoxication. The motorcyclist, identified by police as Gilberto Negrete, 40, of Hayward, also placed under arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated and booked into Santa Rita Jail.

Amanda Lopez, 30, and Tristan Reyes, 21, both of Union City were arrested. Lopez was taken to Santa Rita Jail and Reyes was taken to Fremont Jail.
