Auto accidents: Fatal 3-car crash blamed on suspected DUI driver

A road in Riverside County was closed for approximately four hours on a recent Wednesday. The California Highway Patrol reported that this followed a multi-vehicle crash that claimed the life of one person. It is suspected that this was yet another of those auto accidents that involved an intoxicated driver.

An accident report indicates that the suspected impaired driver was heading south in a pickup truck when the vehicle inexplicably veered across the center line into the northbound traffic lanes. The pickup truck smashed head-on into an SUV heading north, causing it to overturn and strike a van that was also northbound. The SUV driver did not survive the collision.

The pickup driver, his passenger and the driver of the van were taken to a hospital. Reportedly, none of them suffered life-threatening injuries. Officers at the scene apparently had reason to believe the truck driver was impaired. He was arrested, and will be facing DUI-related charges.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, knowing that his or her death was preventable, is surely devastating. At the same time, there will be financial challenges with which to cope. Many times, surviving family members choose to seek the support and guidance of an experienced California personal injury attorney to navigate wrongful death lawsuits after losing loved ones in auto accidents. A lawyer can help with establishing negligence on the part of the driver deemed responsible for the death and assist with documenting the claims in pursuit of recovery of financial and emotional damages.
