A woman suspected of drunk driving collided head-on with another vehicle on Highway 20, inflicting serious injuries on the other car’s occupants. According to news reports, the alleged drunk driver was not wearing a seat-belt at the time of the crash and was ejected from her vehicle. She was transported by helicopter to Sutter Roseville Medical Center where she is listed in critical condition.
The other vehicle involved in the crash was driven by a woman traveling with three high school students. All the occupants sustained injuries in the crash. One of the juvenile passengers was transported by helicopter to a local hospital where she was treated for a broken right collarbone and non-paralyzing spinal fractures.
As a Stockton personal injury lawyer I wish all the car accident victims a speedy a full recovery. This incident is another reminder of the dangers that alcohol presents when combined with the act of driving. I strongly urge motorists to never drink and drive as it puts the public and yourself at great risk of injury or death in the event of a collision. If you or a loved one was injured by a drunk driver, speak to a car accident attorney to discuss your legal options.
