A Concord woman had to be resuscitated this morning after she crashed her car through a fence and landed in a backyard swimming pool in Benicia, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Yvonne Campbell, 43, was speeding at about 65 mph and traveling eastbound on Interstate 780 at about 8:35 a.m. when witnesses said her 2000 Acura TL began weaving in and out of the lane. Soon afterwards, Campbell veered off the roadway, traveled down an embankment, crashed through two fences and landed in a swimming pool, according to the CHP.
No one was injured other than Campbell herself.
Our firm’s San Diego car accident lawyers are grateful that Campbell did not cause pain and suffering to anyone else due to her reckless driving, nor that she caused the wrongful death of anyone when were car went out of control.
When emergency workers pulled Campbell out from the water, Campbell was not breathing. Fortunately, members of the Benicia Fire Department were able to revive her using CPR. She was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
The CHP reported that Campbell smelled strongly of alcohol and although the results of toxicology tests are pending, the CHP officer was sure Campbell had been driving-drunk (DUI).
