California car accidents: 4 people killed in head-on crash

People who have indulged in drugs or alcohol and still insist on driving should expect that their evening may end in tragedy. Car accidents often result when a driver exercises poor judgment, and alcohol can seriously impact a person's judgment. In a recent example, a young woman suspected of drunk driving killed four motorcyclists when she drove the wrong way on a California highway.

The horrific accident happened just after 2 a.m. on a Sunday morning. According to a California Highway Patrol officer, the 24-year-old woman was driving an SUV north in the southbound lane. She struck two motorcycles head-on, ejecting and killing all four riders, all in their 40s.

The SUV driver was transported by air to a medical center. She was later released and booked into a pretrial facility. According to jail records, she faces several serious charges, including vehicular manslaughter, driving with a suspended or revoked licence and DUI causing injury. Reportedly, her blood alcohol limit was .20.

Unfortunately, this woman appears to have failed to exercise good judgment in deciding to operate her vehicle while impaired, and as a result, four lives have ended much too early. Many people find car accidents of this sort very difficult to comprehend, as they seem so preventable. The victims' families are likely not only grieving, but also feeling anger and frustration that one person can cause such destruction, simply because of a poor choice. They may consider pursuing the matter through California civil court. Although nothing can bring loved ones back, a successfully litigated wrongful death lawsuit can help mitigate the substantial monetary losses that often follow such tragedies.
