California AA Accident Attorneys

A man with an alleged alcohol intoxication level of twice the legal limit was charged on Wednesday for killing three women in Anaheim. He crashed into the unsuspected women who were walking home from a baby shower.

Authorities accused Anthony Lewis Sanchez, a 40-year-old from Buena Park, of driving under the influence at a high rate of speed on Feb. 9. He was speeding through Western Avenue until he reached the intersection at Del Monte Driver at approximately 11 p.m.

Pedestrians Carmen Mendoza, 56-years-old, Sheyla Mendoza, and Stephanie Henriquez, both 21-years-old, were attempting to get across the street to get home after attending a baby shower. All three of the women, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s office, are related.

Sanchez neither slowed down nor stopped while driving at a high rate of speed prior to crashing into the women, according to reports. He is being accused for the death of all three who died from the impact of the incident.

Sheyla Mendoza was pronounced dead at the scene; Carmen Mendoza and Stephanie Henriquez died later at UC Irvine Medical Center.

When Anaheim Police Department responded to the scene they found and arrested Sanchez, who is being accused of having the blood alcohol level of .17 percent – twice the legal limit of .08 percent.

Sanchez is being charged with the following: three felony counts of vehicular manslaughter causing death with gross negligence while intoxicated; then one felony count of driving under the influence causing bodily injury; one felony count of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or more causing bodily injury. There are also sentencing enhancements and allegations for causing death to multiple victims, having a blood alcohol level over .15 percent, and causing great bodily injury, per CBS Local.

According to news outlets, if Sanchez is convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of nearly thirteen years in state prison. Detectives will use the evidence found on the case to help convict Sanchez.

On a sidewalk near the scene of the accident, candles, photos and posters were gradually placed turning the site into a memorial for the fallen victims.
