In Corte Madera early Sunday, two teenage drivers were arrested for drunken driving. The arrests happened within one hour of each other, said authorities. A 16-year-old boy from San Rafael was the first to be arrested after he crashed near Highway 101. The collision started around 1am when he spun out of control and crashed near the on-ramp in Mill Valley on Seminary Drive into a concrete center median. The California Highway Patrol reported that he drove to Corte Madera, and his damaged car was discovered by a security guard. The boy was arrested on Tamalpais drive for being underage and driving with a blood alcohol content of at least .05 percent. He was later released to his parents.
According to news reports, a 17-year-old boy from Kentfield was arrested one hour after the first arrest under suspicion of drinking and driving. He was pulled over near Tamalpais Drive on Highway 101. He was cited for the same crime as the previous driver, plus alcohol possession for having beer, vodka, and rum inside his vehicle. As a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer, I’m glad that no one was hurt due to the drunken teenagers. I hope they learned their lesson and do not drink and drive again. If you or a loved one are harmed due to a reckless driver, a San Bernardino car accident attorney can assess your claim.
