The two passengers from the GMC was taken to Sutter Hospital to be treated for minor wounds. Their names were not disclosed.

Meanwhile, Cisneros-Ramirez was believed to be intoxicated at the time. He was arrested on suspicion of two felonies, including driving under the influence and causing injury, as well as two misdemeanors for reckless driving and violating probation.

In this case, Mr. Hector Cisneros-Ramirez is believed to have been driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs which is considered as a serious crime throughout the state. DUI has corresponding criminal penalties, and the kinds of the charges to be filed depend on factors including the prior convictions of the alleged DUI driver, the severity of the offense, the level of intoxication and the injuries caused to another individual.

Aside from DUI, the suspect is also accused of speeding and driving the wrong way prior to impact. These leave Ms. Katherine Pisesky and the occupants of the GMC a right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
