Four Injured on Rice Canyon Road in Suspected DUI Accident

By Ross Jurewitz on November 15, 2012

Robert Gresham, 24, and a 48-year-old motorist sustained major injuries in a suspected driving under the influence (DUI) crash that occurred on November 7 around 8:50 p.m. near the Pala Indian Reservation. Front seat passengers in both of the vehicles sustained minor injuries in this head-on collision.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt, Gresham drove his Toyota Tacoma into the westbound lane and struck a Mercedes E350 head-on.

Medics responded to this crash and immediately took all four injured victims to Palomar Medical Center for treatment. Our San Diego auto accident law office prays that the injuries sustained by all victims heal soon.

In Bettencourt’s statement, alcohol was believed to be a factor in the crash.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), drunken driving accidents contributed to 12,998 fatalities in the year 2007. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), 203,866 people were arrested in California for drunk driving in 2007.

Since there were severe injuries involved in this probable DUI accident, the at-fault party may be charged with a felony DUI. This type of conviction may include paying high fines, the loss of his/her driver’s license, and prison time. A victim injured from the actions of a drunken driver may be entitled to collect compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and more.

We recommend that both parties involved seek their legal options from a qualified attorney as early as possible.
We are committed to win our clients case and protect them against financial hardship. To learn more contact the experienced San Diego County DUI accident attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group at (888) 233-5020.
