Our car accident lawyers in San Diego know the combination of drinking and driving leads to more serious personal injury and devastating car accidents every year. Drivers know this fact, and yet, DUI car crashes like this one continue to happen.
In Kern County, California, just north of Bakersfield, four men were killed as a result of a wrongful death DUI car accident at about 5 a.m. on Sunday morning. A 25-year-old man was taken to Kern County Jail on suspicion of felony drunk driving and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

California Highway Patrol officials say the car that was traveling hit a concrete irrigation pipe and flipped over. As a result, three of the men in the car accident were ejected from the vehicle.
How many times do drivers and passengers of DUI car accidents need to die before the message becomes clear? Drinking and driving causes car accidents, and it risks the health and safety of too many people. The combination is a chance that no one should be willing to take or contemplate … EVER!
Our car accident lawyers in San Diego handle cases where drinking and driving causes car crashes frequently. When they are completed and settlements are paid out for personal injury or wrongful death, we always ask ourselves the same question: How in the world did that person think it was a good idea to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated? How?
We strongly encourage car drivers who tend to drive a car while intoxicated (DWI) or drunk to join Alcoholic’s Anonymous or another support group. Is it not better to get help outside of prison than behind bars — or worse, after causing a wrongful death?
