Suspected Drunk Driver Arrested After Two People Killed

Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Posted in Car Accident

On January 1, a 30-year-old man was arrested after an accident that left two people dead. Police say they suspect that the man was intoxicated when he caused a multi-vehicle collision on the Garden Grove Freeway. The incident killed a 9year-old girl and her 33-year-old mother.

Authorities say that the driver in a BMW was speeding in the HOV lane when he rear-ended a Lexus in the same lane. The Lexus struck the barrier wall on the right and the BMW then rear-ended a Ford truck which overturned and skidded across all traffic lanes. A Mazda then struck the truck and then the center divider. The girl and her mother were in the overturned truck.

At the Compass Law Group, we know that the victim’s families are going through so much right now. There are many dangers that California drivers face on a daily basis in and around the city. If you need a car accident attorney, you can count on our knowledgeable and experienced team to be by your side.

The Numbers For California

We know that California is a tough place to drive in, especially around big cities like Anaheim. Not only do we have a large population, but there are plenty of tourists from all over the country all around us. For the latest reporting year there were:

  • More than 12,000 serious injuries (major internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, etc.)
  • Over 3,500 fatalities from traffic accidents.

While most accidents result in only minor injuries, even those can lead to big medical bills. For catastrophic injuries, the costs can become tremendously more than what most people can afford. Insurance companies do not always cover all of the following accident-related expenses:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Emotional and psychological damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Punitive damages

How They Happen

We know that most vehicle accidents are caused by driver error, but not all mistakes rise to the level of gross negligence. However, there are times when a driver needs to be held accountable for their actions if they cause harm. This includes when:

  • A driver is distracted by their phones, other devices, or people inside the vehicle.
  • A driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of an accident.
  • A driver is speeding or driving aggressively.

Did you know that 27% of all traffic-related fatalities in the state happened due to drunk driving incidents? Speeding is the number one cause of accidents year after year. Despite efforts to crack down on distracted driving, it is still happening at high rates.

Negligent drivers must be held accountable.
