Man, 82, Killed; Former Stockton Councilman Arrested for DUI
STOCKTON, Calif. (Nov. 28, 2018) — Victor Mow, 72, was arrested following a suspected DUI crash that killed an 82-year-old man near Country Club Boulevard and Fontana Avenue.
The crash took place about 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene following the accident.
Mow, a former Stockton City Council member and Vice Mayor, remained at the scene. Police suspected he was under the influence of alcohol. He was subsequently arrested and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail. He faces charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence.
Mow is currently the commissioner for the Port of Stockton. He is also a retired Board of San Joaquin County Supervisor where he served 8 years and two years as a Chairman of the Board.
Police are heading up an investigation into the cause of this crash and will examine the evidence at the scene, take measurements and speak to any possible witnesses. At this time, it appears that Mr. Mow is going to face criminal charges, but the family of the person who died may also pursue a wrongful death case against him.
