Brentwood Head-on DUI Crash Monday on Brentwood Boulevard

Brentwood Head-on DUI Crash Monday on Brentwood BoulevardWoman and Passenger Victims Injured in DUI Crash

LOCATION: Brentwood

DATE OF INCIDENT: Monday, May 7th

May 8, 2018– According to the San Jose Mercury News, a malicious DUI head-on collision left three people badly injured including one motorist who was arrested Monday evening.

At roughly 8:50 p.m., authorities received notification of a collision between a 2002 Chevy Cavalier and a 2007 Infinity.

The driver of the Chevy only ID’d at this time as a 36-year-old man had been traveling westbound on Brentwood Boulevard before veering across lanes into oncoming traffic directly into the path of the Infinity.

Per the Mercury News, both the driver of the Infinity only being identified as a woman, as well as her passenger, suffered moderate to serious injuries stemming from the wreck and were rushed to hospitals for treatment.

36-Year-Old Man Confirmed to be Under Influence

Meanwhile, the driver of the Chevy was confirmed to have been driving under the influence. The unidentified 36-year-old man, however, was badly injured and flown to John Muir Medical Center, where he remained in serious but stable condition. He will be arrested for a DUI pending is release from the hospital.

California Highway Patrol officials shut down eastbound Brentwood Boulevard for several hours and proceeded to investigate the crash as they were very much active and remained present at the scene for a long duration.

No other details have been provided at this time.

A forensic examination of each of the vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what ultimately caused the accident. Based on the preliminary information provided, however, it appears as though the 36-year-old driver of the Chevy will be held liable for this crash as it has been determined that he was under the influence as he crossed over into oncoming traffic directly into the path of the Infinity.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing was confirmed to have been a factor, both the injured woman and her passenger will possess the right to file personal injury lawsuits against the negligent motorist. Personal injury victims not held responsible for any collision have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income due to absence from work.
