61 May 19th, 2016 Jensen Buchanan Arrested For DUI Car Crash That Left Other Person With Injuries!

Courtesy/FacebookJBuchanan

The Young and the Restless recurring Jensen Buchanan (Elise Moxley), who is best known for her soap opera work as Vicky/Marley on the defunct Another World and as Sarah Gordon on One Life to Live, was arrested on Wednesday morning around 6:20am for an alleged DUI car crash that left the other driver with injuries.  This in a report from the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

According to the report,  Buchanan was reportedly driving her black 2016 Mercedes east on State Route 154, in Buelton, near Santa Barbara.  Officials said her vehicle drifted across a double yellow line and slammed into a white 2014 Ford C-Max which was going west.  Buchanan and the driver of the other vehicle were both taken to Cottage Hospital as a result of their injuries.

The CHP said her injuries were minor but that the 56-year-old Camarillo man in the Ford is being treated for “major injuries.” They did not specify the extent of his injuries.  They arrested her and charged her later for a DUI.  The route was closed for nearly 20 minutes as a result of the crash.

    Anyone drunk and on the road at 6 a.m. was most likely drinking all night, right? DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.

    People will never learn, don’t drink and drive. Jensen has a drinking problem, she needs to get help. I hope the man, get better. Jensen needs to go to jail, and teach her a lesson. Not to drink and drive.

    Agreed. Don’t drink and drive. Period. You know what BUGS me the most is that these actors could AFFORD a driver or a cab. So stupid and, ultimately, selfish to choose otherwise. Always makes me believe that it is far from the FIRST TIME that the person drove drunk….thought they’d make it to their destination again…stupid.

    My girlfriend who was killed two years ago the girl who hit her only twenty one years old driving on a suspended license from a previous DUI she is now serving twenty five years some states take this very seriously as they should ! We have access to cabs uber drivers and in so me states they have companies that are strictly for people who have too much to drink that will drive you home ! All it takes is a moment a wrong decision and you have ruined your life and someone else’s! I am very sad for her and the other driver I hope he makes it but the pictures of the cars is devastating!

    The man who was injured was Bradley Asolas 56 years old ! I don’t think this is someone making up a story I just can’t find out any info if you can help me fine I just know what this family is going thru and no it is in no way any reflection on the actress I am not here to judge

    Timmm replied

    k/kay, sadly, there is no good info on Bradley. All the news reports focus on the celebrity! “Jesen , was driving on the eastbound lanes of Highway 154 west of Live Oak at 6:19 a.m. when she allowed her black Mercedes S550 to drift across the double yellow line, according to Officer John Ortega of the California Highway Patrol in Buellton.”

    I would contact the CHP to see if they would release any info on Brad. Let them know you want to help him. Also, contact the hospital he was taken to. [ Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital ]The hospital may have a fund set up there to assist Brad.

    If either of those suggestions fall flat, crazy as it may seem. contact TMZ, they have ALL the info on the “Stars!” Good luck k.

    Hitting the reply all button after sending a sexy email to your hubby is a bad mistake, drinking while under the influence is a choice—a choice that cost another human being harm– as much I love her too, she needs to face the consequences of her choice if her drinking was the root cause of the accident–so I am praying for her, but also for the person who was injured by her poor choice to drink after drinking

    speaking of mistakes that should be driving while under the influence and her poor choice to drive after drinking

    He is not doing well. Still in the hospital where Jensen left him. on breathing tube, infections, if anyone wants to send prayers, cards, flowers and his wife has no car, using money to stay in hotels to be near him (they are from AZ, were looking to re locate) now -they HAVE to relocate, only he can’t finish his interview for his new position or start his new job. Read the articles, you;ll see where he his, still. Same bed, tubes, sedated. My friend cannot look into the eyes of her love of life.
    Broke, alone. Family had to go back to AZ and work. They have family and friends WAITING for him to still come too! I am one of them.

    She is hardly a celebrity, even in daytime she sort of a has-been. Just don’t drink and drive is the answer. In this day and age with uber taxis and an awareness of the consequences you would think people would learn but I guess not.

    This is so hard to believe but I guess it could happen to anyone. We don’t know the whole story but she could have been out at a party and thought that she was capable of driving. I’m glad she’s ok & hope the driver in the other car will be alright as well. We have to learn to keep our car keys in our purses and call a cab when we’re drinking because even one drink can react differently on a person.

    Sorry to hear when someone loses their job. But it was all Jensen’s fault. My question is, was she going to the liquor store at 6 in the morning or leaving a bar during that time of day?

    Speaking from the position of someone who is coming up on 5 years without a drink, you are drunk at six in the morning because you’ve been up all night drinking or you drink all the time. You may think you’ve sobered up because the sun is out, but thats a dangerous lie. Thank god no one was killed and I hope the man that was injured recovers quickly. I truly hope Ms. Buchanan gets professional help.

    With Uber, it is inexcusable for ANYONE to get behind a wheel after having too much to drink. It angers me when I read that when people have the means, do not put yourself or others in danger. The biggest question is why someone is drunk at 6:00 in the morning. I wish the driver a quick recovery and hope JB gets immediate attention for a serious problem. Be accountable!

    Ray…oh, I agree!!!!! Being drunk at 6:20AM in the morning is BEYOND STUPID!!!!! At that time of morning, people should either (1) still be in bed sleeping or (2) about to wake up in order to get ready for work. But, hung over in the very early AM of the morning? NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!!!!!!

    Take care, Ray.

    Don’t have all the facts of the case, but in general I do not have much sympathy for anyone arrested for DUI because in this day and age when the evidence of the dangers of driving after consuming alcohol are so well known there is no excuse to do it, other than believing the fantasy that somehow nothing bad will happen to you.

    I do know depending how much you consumed you could have your last drink at midnight and still have the alcohol in your system in the morning when you think you are as sober as a judge, but you are not, which is why cops are out patrolling for impaired drivers during the morning of big party nights, like the Super Bowl, because they are aware of that fact, most drivers aren’t

    The post says this is an alleged DUI. Don’t be so quick to judge her with such unkind comments. This is the problem with blogs and social media – you can post anything you like without getting all the facts.

    Seriously? They use the word allegedly so they won’t be sued. She was arrested for a DUI and that’s a fact.

    This is the problem with commenting on blogs – you can post anything without actually reading the article.

    Yes, seriously. How do like living in your glass house?

    me3 replied

    Glass houses have nothing to do with it. To say she was arrested for a DUI is a fact, not a judgment.

    Enjoy living in the house of denial. Seriously.

  27. Michael (not Fairman) says:

    I think it’s entirely possible, even in this day and age, to misjudge whether you’ve had too much to drink and are impaired. The availability of Uber and cabs and such is largely irrelevant; most people who DUI don’t do so because there’s no alternative available, they do it because they misjudge how badly off they are—the same impairment that affects their driving extends to their judgment.

    That said, there’s still no excuse. Come on, at this point, this issue has been exhaustively publicized, and we all KNOW it’s possible to misjudge your abilities after you’ve consumed alcohol, so it should just be a matter of course that you don’t get behind a wheel when you’ve been drinking, even if you “feel fine to drive.” If you can’t ingrain that much—”I am taking a drink and cannot trust my judgment once I do, so I am deciding now, before I take the drink, that I am not going to get in my car afterward no matter how OK I think I am”—in your brain well enough that it stays with you when you drink, then you need not to be drinking, period.

    Hope the other driver comes out of this OK. Whatever else you might say about this situation, he certainly doesn’t deserve what has happened to him.

    Good -hope she reaches out to my friends, the victims (Brad and his wife, she KNOWS where to find them STILL in the hospital, probably for another month or MORE!) and offers to use it to help pay for my friends hotel bills, taxi’s (she has no car, Jensen totaled it) food and all that while my friend, the wife is in a town where she know NO ONE. They were visiting to possibly relocate and interview for a job….
    I just THANK god my friend, Brads’ wife was not in the car! (I do not see her name in the articles, so I preserve it for privacy)
    I DARE Jensen to send something to the hospital and REACH out to them! If you all could see what I have. This vivacious man, lying so still, not waking up. I cannot upload the photo, it would bring tears to your eyes!
    Thank you.

    He is not doing well, and they are running out of money. They are not from Camarillo they are from AZ and he was there interviewing and possibly thinking of relocating after many years in AZ. She has Motel, food costs, Taxi costs, NO car becuase he got hit in it. She is stuck, waiting for him to wake up. If ANYONE cares, read the articles, you know where he is, you know his name, you know where to find him. Send cards, prayer , notes, flowers, money, whatever you can. He is the SOLE provider for this family. He is still sedated and cannot have surgeries because they cannot find the source of his fever, STILL after several days. I was in their wedding in the 70′s dear friends, sweet friends. And now hurt, broken and no car. Away from home and family. He has barely come too. Hooked up to so many machines. These are my LIFE long friends. Hope the community can help -they know no one there, at all 9In Camarillo). They are far from home. Please, help. This is NOT a farce, Look at facebook you’ll find us/them and see the posts from friends and family. AND his kids (3) and grand kids are standing by, watching this vivacious man whittle away. I am not asking to send ME anything -send it to the hospital. Again if you care, you will find him (just read the articles). Thank you and SHAME on Jensen. She should be reaching out and helping my friend who is STUCK, alone watching her husband suffer. He is alive, but NOT there. I hope Jensen gets the she needs, so this doesn’t happen to someone else.
    Thank you, LRJ
