Impaired driving at the heart of many car accidents

Impaired drivers are a danger on California highways. Impairment can involve distractions such as drinking and driving or even using drugs and then operating a motor vehicle. Car accidents involving impaired drivers occur on a daily basis throughout California as well as the rest of the United States.  The results of such accidents can be devastating to all involved, often ending in injury or even death.

Authorities have suggested that a recent accident that took three lives and injured one other could be the result of some form of impaired driving. Reports indicate that a 23-year-old man was driving westbound on Highway 145. He was traveling at approximately 70 mph when he veered into oncoming traffic, grazed an SUV and hit the front of a small sedan.

The driver who is believed to have caused the accident was killed. Additionally, two of the individuals in the small sedan were killed and one was injured. Authorities have indicated that alcohol or drugs may have been a contributing factor. Test results have not been released to verify this belief.

Car accidents such as this one are tragic for all involved. Families are left to grieve and pick up the pieces of their altered lives. In addition to finding the strength to move forward, families must often find a way to meet the financial needs caused by such tragedy. In a case such as this one, it is possible that the victims' families may decide to file suit against the driver's estate in a California civil court.
