I-8 DUI Accident Hospitalizes San Diego Family
Two adults and two children, a 10-year-old and a 6-year-old, suffered serious injuries in a three-vehicle crash that occurred on December 4, 2011, around 10 a.m. on eastbound side of the freeway near Waring Road on Interstate 8 (I-8). According to the California Highway Patrol, a Land Rover heading eastbound at about 80 to 90mph clipped a red car, then rear-ended a Lexus SUV, causing it to spin out and go over the center divider of the freeway.
The impact of the collision made the SUV fall 120 to 150 feet down an embankment. Both the adults in the car were immediately transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital and the two kids were taken to Rady Children’s Hospital to receive medical treatment.
The driver of the Land Rover was arrested on suspicion of DUI. From the present information, it is quite clear that the reckless driving and irresponsible actions of the Land Rover driver led to this chain-reaction accident that left four people badly injured. If the car driver is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he could –not only—face criminal DUI charges but could also be held financially responsible for the injuries and damages caused.
The injured victims should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County DUI auto accident lawyer who would help them obtain timely compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of earnings, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and other related damages.
Our San Diego law office hopes and prays that the injuries suffered by all the injured victims make a full recovery.
