An intoxicated driver killed a 75-year-old woman and an 8-year-old girl last night in Perris, according to KTLA 5. The accident happened around 10:00 p.m. yesterday at Perris Boulevard and Ramona Expressway.
The report says that the driver of a Mercedes-Benz heading south on Perris Boulevard failed to stop at a red light and crashed into a Dodge Durango. The Durango then hit a third vehicle that was waiting to turn. The two victims killed were in the Durango. The other drivers were also injured and went to local hospitals.
Police are seeking more information about the accident. If you are a witness to the accident, please contact the authorities. The number to the Perris sheriff’s station is in the article link above. Officers at the scene did not tell reporters why they believed that the responsible driver in this accident was intoxicated.
Sometimes police will assume that a driver was drunk to see if the charge will stick. However, just being accused of a DUI can end someone’s career and leave a black mark on their employment record for the rest of their life. If the police accuse you of DUI, you must act fast and contact a DUI attorney that can help you.
You only have a few days to act before the wheels of justice turn against you. Your license could get automatically suspended without your even realizing it. Contact a DUI attorney as soon as you can if you’re accused of a crime involving intoxication and motor vehicles.
