One more for the road
Just great, a drunk driver, with a six year old in his car runs an intersection and kills a woman driving her car and puts him, the kid and the passenger of the other vehicle in the hospital. He, of course, put the woman in the ground.
When will the carnage associated with drunk driving end?
One killed, 3 injured in accident Marvin Hurst: KENS 5 Eyewitness News
A two-car collision killed one person and injured three others Monday night, including a 6-year-old who suffered what police call serious injuries.
Police say they believe the driver of one of the cars was drunk and speeding.
The accident happened around 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Buckeye and West Olmos. According to investigators, the driver they believe was drunk and the 6-year-old boy were traveling east on West Olmos when their vehicle crashed into another car, driving north on Buckeye.
A woman in the north-bound vehicle died at the scene. Her passenger suffered minor injuries. The driver of the east-bound vehicle and the child were transported to University Hospital. That driver will be charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault by proxy.
