DUI Accidents In San Diego On The Rise
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Drunk drivers plaque roadways in San Diego, California. Recently, a drunk driver was
convicted of hitting and killing a motorcyclist after bar hopping in Temecula
last summer. According to court documents, the DUI driver was convicted
and will spend the next ten years in prison. Police say the man visited
three bars and then attempted to drive home drunk when he struck a motorcyclist
on August 1, 2015. Police say the accident occurred just after midnight
on West Lilac Road near Bonsall when the drunk driver hit a 60-year-old
motorcyclist, who died instantly. Prosecutors say the man has a prior
2008 DUI conviction from Riverside County.
Last week, a suspected drunk driver crashed into a Caltrans pickup truck
on the La Jolla Parkway ramp to southbound Interstate 5. A Caltrans worker
was injured when the DUI driver crashed into the back of the truck just
before 1 a.m. The California Highway Patrol said the driver attempted
to run from his vehicle after the accident but was detained by police.
He now will face DUI charges. The accident is still under investigation,
and it is unknown the condition of the Caltrans worker.
