CHP Investigation Shifts Blame In Fatal San Diego Crash
New evidence in a crash on I-8 earlier this year has convinced California Highway Patrol (CHP) that they assigned blame to the wrong driver.
Family members of the Volkswagen driver say they are pleased with this result and thankful to the CHP for their investigative efforts.
According to the Mova Law Group, an injury law firm in San Diego, DUI accident penalties can result in stiff prison sentences. In the crash above, the driver was charged with including murder, vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, and felony DUI causing injury or death. California Penal Code Section 191.5(b) tells us that if you’re convicted for killing someone while DUI, you may go to prison for several years, and, in special cases when there’s a wanton disregard for life, you could be charged with a “Watson Murder“, which carries a sentence of 15 – Life in a California State Prison.
