OAKLAND -- A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI after crashing into a tree on Highway 13 on Saturday, authorities said.

Miguel Gutierrez, of Pittsburg, drove off the highway and into the tree near Mountain Boulevard at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Sean Wilkenfeld. Gutierrez and another 21-year-old man were taken to Highland Hospital with major injuries.

Gutierrez told authorities he was driving to Pittsburg after attending a "sideshow" at 106th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard in East Oakland.

It was a busy weekend for the CHP's Oakland area office, which covers northern Alameda County and western Contra Costa County. Officers arrested 28 people on suspicion of DUI from Friday to Sunday.
