LATON, CA – An early Sunday morning incident involving a high-end sports car claimed the life of a suspected drunk driver. Around 3:20 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol, a single-vehicle collision was reported near Mt. Whitney and Fatima Avenues.

They claim that when they got there, they discovered the 22-year-old driver, a man from Laton, dead from wounds sustained when his Chevrolet Corvette veered off the road and came to rest on its roof. The driver allegedly failed to navigate the curve at Latonia Avenue while driving eastbound on Mt. Whitney Avenue at a fast rate of speed on the slick road, according to the CHP. Officers claim that because of how quickly he was driving, his car left the road, struck a parked car, crashed through several residential fences, and then overturned.

According to investigators, the motorist may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision.

Laton DUI Accident Lawyer

California reported more than 1,000 vehicle accidents caused by drunk driving in 2018. About 30% of these collisions result in at least one death. In the United States, more than 10,000 people die as a result of drunk driving every year. Those injured in car accidents caused by drunk drivers are often much worse off than those who suffer injuries in regular wrecks. This is because drunk drivers tend to be more reckless than sober drivers. 

In addition to the mental and physical suffering that injured victims must endure, they are often faced with mounting medical bills as well as being forced to take time off work. People who are injured in accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers should contact a car accident lawyer in California as soon as possible. In most cases, victims are entitled to compensation to help ease the financial burdens they will inevitably face moving forward in their lives.
