DUI Arrest for Rail Road Flat Man After Railroad Flat Road Collision

Rail Road Flat, CA...On January 3, at approximately 1341 hours, the Stockton Communications Center received a call of a traffic collision involving a overturned pickup truck on Railroad Flat Road, near Swiss Ranch Road in the Mountain Ranch area. Officers from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) San Andreas Area Office responded to the scene and contacted Ryan Ireland. It was determined he was driving his Dodge at a high rate of speed, while using his cell phone. Due to his inattention and level of intoxication, he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway.

His Dodge left the roadway, collided with a power pole, and overturned. He was transported to Mark Twain Medical Center for treatment of major injuries. The Rail Road Flat man was placed under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and was released to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Railroad Flat Road was completely closed from 1/3/2019 at 1:35 pm until 1/4/2019 at 7:20 am to repair the power pole.

    About Your Tax Returns and the Shut Down:
    Everybody got paid before. Everybody got their Return but a tad late. Everybody came out alive. Didn't your Parents always tell you to save for hard times? Yeah think about those words your Parents tried to tell you but you did not want to listen to. Now go be a good responsible Adult and stop your crying.

      Since 1972 the government has built over 3000 miles of 'sound walls' along our highways to 'protect' nearby homeowners from traffic sounds.
      These walls cost about $2 million per mile. The government has spent over $6 billion of our tax money on them.
      If the government can spend $6 billion on walls to protect homeowners from traffic noise, why can't it spend $5 billion to protect our lives?

You know an accident is just that an accident- everybody always has some negative comment to make about an accident. Ryan is what we call young and dumb but we’ve all been there and we all have our regrets and have learned our lessons. I feel for his family and I’m just glad there was not anyone else involved. The Ireland family is near and dear to my heart and *bleep* happens, maybe this will be what was needed for Ryan to grow up, as much as the entire incidents of that day suck and wish it had never happened it’s an eye opener. Kylie and Ryan if you see this i love you guys and i am here for you if you need me. I hope you get well soon Ryan. Kylie stay strong your an amazing lady and a awesome momma. Your momma Mary and daddy Dave did a great job making you into the wonderful woman you are today. Again love you all!!!!!! Love, Jen
