California AA Accident Attorneys

A driver suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol was arrested early Sunday morning after causing a fatal accident in Burbank.

According to reports from the Burbank Police Department, the crash took place just after 5:30 a.m. near the intersection of Buena Vista Street and Alameda Avenue, where a dark colored SUV piloted by an intoxicated driver smashed into a white Lexus sedan, sending it off the road and onto the curb.

Paramedics responded to the scene to attempt to save the driver of the Lexus but were ultimately unsuccessful, as the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported. Information about the driver is being withheld at this time, as the county coroner’s office is still working to notify their next of kin.

Police then administered a field sobriety test to the driver of the SUV, a 29 year old, which was promptly failed. The driver was arrested and booked into a local jail and is now facing charges of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.

The crash forced the temporary shutdown of the intersection as police and cleanup crews worked to clear away the accident. Both vehicles suffered serious bodily damage and needed to be dragged away on tow trucks. After the brief closure, the roads were reopened and morning traffic was able to pass through the area without hindrance.

The SUV driver, who is likely to face hefty fines and time in jail, is lucky to have escaped uninjured, as driving under the influence has an extremely high chance of causing major harm and even death, as was inflicted upon the innocent driver in this incident.

Driving under the influence puts everyone on the road at risk, and can leave victims in serious need of assistance. Fortunately, there are legal protections in place to help those hurt in drunken driving accidents get what they need to pay for things like hospital visits, car repair payments, medical bills, and even replace wages lost from time spent away from work.
