A 4-year-old girl suffered serious injuries in a suspected DUI car wreck that occurred on August 27‚ 2011‚ around 7:15 a.m. along Fairmont Avenue in Talmadge. According to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali‚ the car driver struck a curb while merging onto Fairmont Avenue from Aldine Drive in Kensington. The SUV contained the driver‚ a 23-year-old passenger‚ and two children‚ ages 4 and 2.
The motorist overcorrected his Ford Explorer‚ causing it to roll several times. The impact of the collision was so strong that the 4-year-old girl‚ who was only restrained by a seatbelt‚ was thrown out of the car. The young girl suffered serious lacerations and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
A 23-year-old female passenger also suffered an abrasion to her right arm. The motorist escaped unhurt in this car wreck. San Diego Police Officers later arrested the motorist on suspicion of felony drunken driving.
If it is found that the car driver was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol‚ then he will most likely be found to have violated California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) which states that “It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug‚ or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug‚ to drive a vehicle.
The injured female passenger and children’s parents should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County DUI car wreck lawyer who would educate them about her legal rights and options. The injured parties can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist to obtain compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ and other accident-related damages.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the young girl and the female passenger heal soon.
