Prosecutors filed criminal charges against an alleged drunk driver who caused a three-vehicle crash injuring 10 people including a toddler. According to a report in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, 26-year-old Robert Anthony Lopez was charged with three counts of fleeing a police officer’s motor vehicle causing serious bodily injury, one count of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury within 10 years of another DUI offense, driving with blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher and driving with a suspended license.

The crash took place the night of July 18, 2016 in the unincorporated community of Valinda in Los Angeles County. California Highway Patrol officers said Lopez was driving an Acura above the speed limit and didn’t stop at a stop sign. Police tried to pull him over, but he didn’t stop and accelerated. As Lopez’s Acura traveled west on Francisquito Avenue, it ran a stop sign and struck a Nissan Maxima traveling north on Walnut Avenue. The Nissan in turn hit a Ford Expedition SUV. The Nissan’s driver was injured along with her two daughters, 7 and 19 months old. The driver and five passengers in the Expedition were also injured.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this crash. We hope none of the injuries were serious and wish the victims the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Continue reading →

A man was killed in a horrific hit-and-run crash in Oceanside, which involved a driver who police say was under the influence. According to a news report on NBC San Diego, the crash occurred in the early morning on June 27, 2016 in the 4000 block of Mission Avenue. Witnesses said a man who was walking on the sidewalk was struck by the car, which officials later determined was being driven by 29-year-old Esteysi Sanchez Izazaga.

Police said because of how fast Izazaga was driving, the victim flew into the windshield head down coming to rest on the front passenger seat. The man’s leg detached from his body and flew through the back window landing on the truck of the car. Izazaga continued driving for about a mile. She then parked the vehicle and walked away before officers arrived at the scene. Shortly after she abandoned her car, her boyfriend called the police and reported the incident. She was arrested and charged with felony DUI, hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter.

When you are involved in a hit-and-run accident, you stop, regardless of whose fault the accident was. As Orange County car accident attorneys who represent the seriously injured, we see examples of how motorists get themselves in trouble because of a momentary lapse in judgment, when they actually believe it is fine for them to leave the scene of an injury accident just because the accident may have been the other party’s fault. Guess what? If you left the scene of an injury hit-and-run crash, you could be looking at being charged with a felony crime.

We see examples of these cases pretty much on a daily basis. On the night of March 28, 2016 a male pedestrian was seriously injured in a Fullerton hit-and-run crash. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the collision was reported in the 400 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue when a vehicle struck a man running across the eastbound lanes. The driver left the scene. The victim was transported to an area hospital with severe injuries. Police are still looking for the hit-and-run driver. Continue reading →
