San Diego Fiery DUI Car Accident Kills Woman and Grandson

By Ross Jurewitz on December 15, 2011

73-year-old Celia Torres and her 16-year-old grandson David Gonzalez were killed in a tragic DUI car accident that occurred on December 9, 2011, around 5:45 p.m. on state Route 125 (SR-125) in La Mesa just south of Interstate 8 (I-8). According to California Highway Patrol, a suspected drunken driver struck the Nissan Pathfinder, causing it to burst into flames and leave both the victims trapped inside.  According to a passerby Jeff Lieres, a Chevrolet Silverado driven by 39-year-old Justin Foulds swiped a car and then struck the Pathfinder, causing a four-car crash. Both Torres and Gonzalez were pronounced dead at the accident scene.

Foulds, who was coming from a holiday work party, was arrested on suspicion of DUI. From the present information, it is quite clear that the reckless driving and irresponsible actions of the motorist led to this chain-reaction accident that claimed two lives. If Foulds is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he would not only face criminal DUI charges and vehicular manslaughter but could also be held responsible for the losses incurred and damages caused.

The victims’ family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County DUI auto accident lawyer who would help them obtain timely compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages. This lawyer would assure that Foulds is apprehended and brought to justice.

Our San Diego personal injury law office sends sincere condolences to victims’ family and friends.
