Possible Drunk Driving Accident Injures Two Girls

By Pacific Attorney Group  Sep. 17, 2012 11:03a

A suspected drunk driver was arrested recently in Glassell Park after an accident that resulted in serious injuries to two young girls. A 14-year-old girl and her 6-year-old little sister were walking through a crosswalk around 7:30 in the evening in the company of their grandmother. The two girls were walking slightly ahead of their grandmother when a 64-year-old man driving a green minivan failed to stop and so hit the two girls. The six-year-old received a severe brain injury and was rushed to a local hospital to undergo brain surgery as well as other treatment for life-threatening injuries. Her older sister also sustained severe injuries but was listed in critical but stable condition. Police did not release the name of the victims or the man that was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). If you or a member of your family was seriously hurt because of an accident caused by a drunk driver then talk to a personal injury attorney to discuss your options for pursuing compensation.

Drunk drivers and those driving under the influence of drugs are responsible for an alarming number of fatalities every year. Over 11,000 people die annually across the nation because an irresponsible person chose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Statistics indicate that nearly a third of people in the United States will be involved in an accident involving alcohol or drugs—this includes buses, motorcyclists, bicyclists, commercial vehicles, big rig trucks, pedestrians and others. Sadly, the large number of drivers on Los Angeles' extensive freeways, highways and streets means that our city is no stranger to these devastating incidents.
