PALM DESERT: DUI Driver Arrested Following Minor Crash on Highway 111

PALM DESERT, California (December 8, 2015) — Arlene Hoppe, 84, of Rancho Mirage was arrested Monday afternoon after police discovered she was driving under the influence of alcohol when she collided with another vehicle on Highway 111.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Hoppe was driving drunk behind the wheel of her silver Toyota Camry in an eastbound direction on Highway 111. She stopped at the intersection with Portola Avenue when the traffic light turned red, but  suddenly reversed the vehicle and struck a Hyundai Santa Fe which was behind her. The collision took place about 2:13 p.m.

Neither of the drivers suffered any serious injuries in the collision. Hoppe was taken to a hospital for medical clearance before being booked into Riverside County Jail in Indio.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is heading up the investigation into the crash. If you were a witness to the collision, call Palm Desert Police Department at 760-836-1600 or Crime Stoppers at 760-341-STOP (7867).

The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
