Two Pedestrians Injured by Suspected Drunk Driver in San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on November 1, 2012

Two pedestrians, a 19-year-old and 20-year-old, suffered serious injuries after being struck by a drunken 19-year-old motorist on October 28 around 1:45 a.m. in the 700 block of Glencoe Drive in San Diego. San Diego Police Officer David Stafford said that the motorist lost control of his Chevrolet Suburban, drove onto the wrong side, and struck two parked vehicles and two pedestrians.

The 19-year-old pedestrian suffered a head injury while the 20-year-old pedestrian suffered broken ribs and a broken clavicle. Our law office sincerely prays for the complete recovery of the victims injured in this San Diego pedestrian collision. The motorist was later booked on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI).

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), drunk driving accidents contributed to 12,998 fatalities in the year 2007. Statistics provided by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) also indicate that about 203,866 motorists in California were arrested for drunk driving in 2007.

When a person makes the choice to drive while impaired, it not only puts themselves at risk, but others around as well. Fortunately, the victims in this accident were not killed by the drunken driver. In either case of injury or death, every drunk driver needs to be held accountable for their reckless actions and neglectful driving. The injured victims need to consult with an experienced DUI accident attorney who has the expertise to handle these types of situations and fight on their behalf.
