LOCATION: Petaluma, Sonoma County
DATE OF INCIDENT: Friday, May 4th
May 7, 2018– According to the Press Democrat, a deadly DUI crash injured two elderly motorists leaving one other dead and another injured Friday early evening on Valley Ford Road.
The crash involved two vehicles at 4:40 p.m. including a Lexus and a 2007 Infinity.
According to the Press Democrat, the driver of the Infinity identified as Isidro Antonio Moya, 19, had been driving over the speed limit eastbound before temporarily losing control and allowed his vehicle to veer to leave the road. Moya was able to regain control and get the vehicle back onto Valley Ford but did so directly into the path of the Lexus operated by Douglas Kaye, 80, of Kentfield.
The crash left Douglas Kaye and his passenger, Cessna Kaye, 80, with very serious injuries for which they each were taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. Their conditions have not been updated at this time.

Meanwhile, Moya was arrested after being taken to a medical center for assessment of minor injuries. He was then arrested on suspicion of being under the influence and remains jailed at Sonoma County Jail.
No further details have been provided at this time.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with both the injured and the deceased’s family and friends during such difficult times.
Kentfield Personal Injury Accident Lawyer
Based on this news report, there is viable evidence that the driver of the Infinity, Antonio Moya, will be held fully responsible for the injuries suffered by Douglas and Cessna Kaye. While police have confirmed that the suspect was under the influence. there are still several unanswered questions here which include whether or not excessive speed or distracted driving played a role? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, both Douglas Kaye and Cessna Kaye will be entitled to filing personal injury lawsuits against the driver responsible for causing the crash. Injured victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
