Fatal construction zone drunk driver convicted of murder


People in San Diego may have heard about the recent conviction of a man who slammed his vehicle into the back of another car while speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol killing two construction workers in the process. The man was charged with and convicted of second-degree murder, vehicular manslaughter, DUI and other charges. The court will sentence him to up to 30 years to life in prison for his crimes.

The car accident occurred in 2012, when the 33-year-old man got behind the wheel after a night of partying with friends, despite pleas from his mother and others for him to not do so. Shortly afterwards, he was driving through a construction zone at over 90 miles per hour when he slammed into the back of a Lexus SUV, sending the vehicle spinning out of control toward a construction crew.

Before they had time to react, two of the construction workers were hit and killed, while the third was injured. The drunk driver registered a .21 blood alcohol content, nearly three times the legal limit in California.

For those involved in horrific incidents such as the recent crash in San Diego, nothing will ever be able to replace the loved one that they have lost. However, with proper legal assistance from an experienced attorney, a family may be able to receive compensation for their tragic loss in the form of funeral expense, lost wages and pain and suffering. Such compensation might set a more comfortable and less-stressful path going forward, allowing a family to grieve and, in time, move on.
