A 52-year-old Beaumont freeway worker suffered serious injuries in a car accident that occurred on July 20‚ 2011‚ around 10:41 p.m. along Highway 91 (US-91) in Riverside. The construction site accident happened in the freeway’s westbound lanes at Van Buren Boulevard. According to CHP‚ a 21-year-old female motorist driving a tan colored vehicle struck the victim.
The injured victim required CPR immediately following. The driver attempted to flee from the scene of the accident but was taken into custody by San Bernardino police. From the available information‚ it is clear that reckless and negligent driving of the motorist led to this serious car crash that left a construction worker seriously injured.
Now the investigating officers need to determine whether the female car driver was speeding‚ distracted or was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Blood sample of the motorist have been taken by the blood technician to determine whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
If the lady driver is found to be driving under influence of drugs or alcohol‚ she would have violated California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a). Also the fact that she tried to run from the scene of the accident makes her guilty of two felonies.
The injured freeway worker should immediately consult with an experienced Riverside County DUI car accident lawyer. An auto accident attorney would assure that the at-fault party is apprehended and brought to justice and would help the injured victim obtain timely compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related damages.
