Law enforcement officials are attempting to find the driver who left the scene of a drunk-driving accident that caused the wrongful death of his 20-year-old friend.
On Sunday at about 4:25 a.m. on the Santa Monica Freeway (10), a BMW that was speeding rear-ended a truck causing it to overturn and lay flat on the La Brea Avenue onramp. The driver of the BMW then left on foot and is being sought by police.
Our car accident lawyers in San Diego are constantly disappointed in the choice a drunk driver makes. If a person gets behind the wheel of a car and starts the engine, irresponsible is the best word to use to describe that driver. If you or anyone you know even thinks about driving a car after drinking, please think twice. The number of car accidents caused by drunk driving continues to go up every year. Don’t become one in that statistic.
If you or someone you know may have a drinking problem that may contribute to drunk driving, check out our DUI prevention resource page. Not only will you find links to organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous, but you’ll also find the statistics on how disastrous drunk driving car accidents can be.
The car accident caused the wrongful death of a 20-year-old of Huntingdon Park. Two other people, another 21-year-old passenger from Santa Fe Springs and the driver of the truck, a 41-year-old man from Hacienda Heights suffered moderate injuries.
