A driver allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol caused a seven-car accident in Paradise, California on February 5 beginning at Skyway and Pearson Road to Pearson and Sierra Park Drive.
The 38-year-old man was driving a Ford truck at 6 p.m. when he collided into a car stopped at a red light at the Skyway and Pearson Road intersection. The impact pushed the stopped automobile forward causing two more rear-end car accidents.
For our firm’s San Diego car accident lawyers, one of their biggest concerns is cases involving driving under the influence (DUI). Luckily, no one was killed in this DUI auto accident; however, thousands of people in the world are not so lucky. Before stepping into an automobile intoxicated, take a minute to consider all the people you may be harming by driving.
The driver then moved into a northbound lane and turned on Pearson Road, crossed over the double yellow lines and sideswiped an automobile in a westbound lane. He then continued driving eastbound on Pearson up the center divider and finally lost control of his car colliding with an unoccupied van near Sierra Park Drive.
Officers conducted field sobriety tests when they arrived and concluded the driver was driving excessively over the legal limit for intoxication. Two car drivers complained of pain and received medical treatment before they were released from the scene.
When it comes to drunk driving, a taxi taken may mean a personal injury avoided and a wrongful death averted. Our firm’s San Diego car accident lawyers want to remind you that there are many ways to prevent DUIs from happening, which means that there is no excuse to get behind the wheel of a car intoxicated.
