Fatal motor vehicle accidents: 1 dead, 3 injured in California

Sharing the roadways with others can be a scary thing when the news is filled with stories of car accidents. The only thing that can worsen a car accident is realizing that it could have been prevented. Fatal motor vehicle accidents brought on by drinking and driving are a growing epidemic in California, and it is no surprise. Drinking alcohol seriously impairs vision and good judgement — crucial attributes when operating vehicles. A man recently lost his life, and three others were injured as a result of a driver suspected of driving drunk.

A 25-year-old man in a Jaguar was reportedly driving south on a California freeway. Witnesses say that he was passing other cars when he lost control and drove into the path of a Toyota that was heading north. Apparently the Toyota could not avoid hitting the Jaguar on the passenger’s side. 

Both of the vehicles involved in this collision had passengers. The 25-year-old driver of the Toyota had a 5-year-old child in the car, while the other driver had a 26-year-old man as his passenger. The 26-year-old passenger died, and the two victims in the Toyota were taken to the hospital with critical injuries. Officers at the scene reported that it appeared the man operating the Jaguar had been driving under the influence.

Accidents like this are a harsh reminder of why it is never okay to get behind the wheel intoxicated. The victims of the accident, along with the family of the deceased, may feel alone in a time like this, but they are not. Should the driver be found negligent and charged with driving under the influence, the victims retain the right to file a claim through the California judicial system for financial restitution. Unexpected expenses for funerals and medical bills often surround the victims of fatal motor vehicle accidents. Should litigation be successful, financial restitution could lift this burden.
