It is evident that Mr. Gabino Carreno-Lopez will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that injured the passenger of the other car involved. The suspect is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol which has corresponding criminal penalties as it is considered as a serious wrongdoing throughout the state.

Aside from DUI, the motorist also fled the scene after causing the wreck. These two factors leave the injured passenger a right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs and lost wages.
