On July 20, three wrongful deaths were caused by a car accident by a suspected drunk driver. The car crash happened in the early morning on Saturday, July 18 near Le Grand, California.
The DUI car accident happened on Highway 99 when a suspected drunk motorist collided with a Ford Mustang and then struck another car that overturned near railroad tracks.
Our firm’s San Diego car accident lawyers believe the combination of drinking and driving should never happen under any circumstances. Drunk drivers are one of the top causes of car accidents. Drivers continue to make the mistake of thinking they are alright to drive after a night of any level of drinking.
All of the people in the Mustang including 21-year-old driver and his pasedied in the car accident.
The suspected drunk driver, 42-year-old man, suffered personal injuries and was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving and gross vehicular manslaughter while under the influence.
To some people, stories like this are enough to keep them from ever getting behind the wheel of a car under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol affects your ability to drive because it compromises your reflexes. Car accidents can lead to personal injuries like whiplash or spinal cord injuries causing paralysis (i.e. paraplegia & quadriplegia).
As car accident attorneys in San Diego, we do everything we can to prevent DUI car accidents from happening.
