Serious accident claims 2 lives; teenage driver arrested

Drinking and driving can be a deadly combination. After one or two drinks, some California residents believe that they are still okay to drive. Unfortunately, this is often a mistaken assumption, and a serious accident is the result.

The average adult is a more proficient driver than a teenage. However, many teenagers assume that they are young and invulnerable. This may have been the case in a recent accident involving a teenage driver who is believed to have been under the influence when the accident occurred. According to police, it is believed that both alcohol and excessive speed were factors in this accident.

Reports indicate that the 16-year-old boy was speeding as he approached an intersection. Rather than stop, his car collided with a small SUV attempting to turn at the intersection. The SUV flipped and landed approximately 160 feet away from the intersection. The SUV's driver was transported to a local hospital where she later died; the SUV's passenger was pronounced dead at accident site. The teenage driver and his passenger did suffer injury and were transported to a local hospital as well.

A serious accident can occur when one acts without considering the consequences. While is it unknown what the teenage driver's thought process was, current evidence suggests that he is responsible for the deaths of two individuals. In a situation such as this one, the victim's families may decide that the appropriate course of action is to file a lawsuit in a California civil court. Such action will not change the outcome; however, it can assist with meeting the financial and emotional needs resulting from the accident.
