Drunk Driver Injures Man in Escondido

In Escondido, California a drunk driver lost control of his pickup truck and ran over and injured a man standing on his patio. The pickup then crashed through the family's patio doors and wall injuring the man's teenage daughter.

While the victim lay trapped under the truck the drunken driver was busy trying to escape. He revved the engine but fortunately the truck was stuck. When police arrived they discovered that the 23 year old drunk driver was on probation for, guess what,...drunk driving! Additionally, this accident occurred the day after the drunk's birthday.

The injured victim was transported to the hospital with severe injuries. He suffered a lacerated spleen, facial injuries, broken bones and ribs and almost lost his leg.

According to an article from the Centers for Disease Control, entitled "Vital Signs: Alcohol-Impaired Driving Among Adults - United States, 2010" Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, October 4, 2011, the average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before first arrest. This year, 10,839 people will die in drunk-driving crashes - one every 50 minutes.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Association reports every minute, one person is injured from an alcohol-related crash and one in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related crash in their lifetime. As with the drunk driver in Escondido 50 to 75% of convicted drunk drivers continue to drive on a suspended license.

The statistics are overwhelming. But for the victims, statistics don't help them pay hospital and doctor bills or put the pieces back together.

This accident occurred on Country Club Lane, at the bottom of a downhill curve. On July 4, 2003 this roadway was the site of a crash that took the lives of a father and his 14-year-old daughter. Area residents, have in the past complained to the City regarding the roadway as being dangerous and in need of stop signs or redesign. While nothing can excuse the actions of the drunk driver, if the City has knowledge of the dangerous condition of the roadway and has done nothing about that danger, the City should address the dangerous condition and help the victims of their indifference.
