Tow truck operator killed by drunk driver

California residents know that the public awareness about the dangers of drunk driving has increased dramatically in recent decades. Sadly, those efforts have not been able to stop many people from making the very tragic and completely unnecessary choice to operate vehicles while after drinking alcohol. The result is that more Californians continue to be injured or killed in drunk driving crashes.

Today, the family and friends of a tow truck operator are left to mourn the loss of their loved one due to a drunk driver. To make matters worse, the drunk driver had been driving on a license suspended four years ago for two different drunk driving incidents. Clearly the man had not learned his lesson as he not only is still driving drunk but even risking driving without a valid license.

The accident occured while the tow truck driver was helping a disabled trash truck. The impaired driver not only hit and killed the tow truck operator as he was outside of his vehicle but kept driving. He only stopped when forced to by a police officer who was off duty but in the area and happened to see the accident take place.

California residents who are involved in accidents like this may want to connect with an experienced personal injury attorney to get an understanding of how they might seek compensation for their losses or injuries.
