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.
