A driver believed to have been driving under the influence of alcohol drove into a La Jolla restaurant on the evening of August 15‚ 2010‚ seriously injured four people as a result of this San Diego drunk driving car accident.
According to police‚ three children and an adult were severely hurt when the car jumped the curb and crashed into Cass Street Cafe and Bakery on the 5500 block of La Jolla Boulevard in Downtown La Jolla. The auto accident happened at about 7 p.m. Traffic was diverted around Forward Street and La Jolla Boulevard. The intoxicated driver was uninjured and was arrested at the scene.
We hope that the injured kids and the other adult recover from their injuries as soon as possible and that they do not suffer any long term consequences due to this accident. If it is found that the driver was indeed driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs‚ he could be prosecuted for felony DUI pursuant to California Vehicle Code section 23152(a). We hope that the driver is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It is completely inexcusable for someone to not only drive while intoxicated but also to so carelessly drive through the front of a restaurant.
The injured adult and the parents of the children would be well advised to consult with an experienced San Diego personal injury attorney to determine their legal rights and seek assistance receiving compensation to pay for medical bills and lost wages as a result of their injuries.
