Child on Bicycle Injured by Suspected Drunken Driver in Ocean Beach

By Ross Jurewitz on December 6, 2012

A child riding a bicycle with his/her mother suffered a broken leg after being struck by a suspected drunken driver on December 1 around 11:51 a.m. in Ocean Beach. According to San Diego Police Officer Matt Gagliardi, this crash took place at the intersection of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and West Point Loma Boulevard.

The child injured in the bicycle collision was immediately taken to a nearby hospital for medical attention and treatment. We are relieved that the mother did not sustain any serious injuries and hope that the child’s broken leg heals quickly.

The suspected drunken driver was later arrested on the suspicion of felony drunken driving.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driving under the influence (DUI) accidents contributed to around 12,000 fatalities in the year 2007. According to California Department of Motor Vehicles statistics, in the year 2007, more than 203,000 motorists were arrested for the felony drunken driving.

The injured victim’s mother should immediately seek counsel from an experienced DUI accident attorney who holds the knowledge to handle such cases proficiently.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense, and in most of the cases, penalties usually turn out to be rigorous. The at-fault drunken motorist in this case might face penalties such as high fines, loss of driver’s license, and even prison time.

A drunken driver not only puts his or her life at risk but also everyone else that is present on the road. Drunken drivers need to be held accountable for their reckless choices and results of those choices.
