Speed, weather, electronics and especially alcohol all have the ability to put a driver at a greater risk of being in an auto accident. This risk doesn’t only affect the driver whose ability to drive safely is diminished but also all other drivers who are sharing the road with that driver. If you are injured in an auto accident, or a loved one dies due to the other driver being intoxicated, you are entitled to monetary damages for your medical expenses and other types of damages. The expert drunk driving personal injury attorneys and wrongful death lawyer specialists here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates will work tirelessly on your case to make sure you receive the pecuniary compensation you deserve.
A man has been arrested in connection with a deadly hit and run crash and was charged Wednesday with four counts of murder. In addition to the murder charges, Sacramento, California resident Fred Lowe, 47 years-old, faces charges of drunk driving and felony hit and run, on top of several enhancement charges that could add to his sentence, one being a prior conviction for driving under the influence. Mr. Lowe was arrested after he allegedly crashed a blue Mercedes into a white Nissan sedan while going eastbound on Interstate 80 near the San Pablo Dam Road exit around 8:10 pm Saturday.
The driver of the Nissan lost control and went over the center divide and into the westbound lanes, where the car overturned. The family was driving back from a father-son basketball tournament. Daryl Horn, 50 years-old, his 14 year-old son, Joe, his brother Troy Biddle, 52 years-old, and his nephew Baden Biddle, 13 years-old, all died at the scene of the crash. Mr. Lowe immediately drove away from the scene, but Contra Costa, California Sheriff’s Deputies recognized his car and arrested him a short time later. Mr. Lowe is currently in jail on $1.15 million bond which could be increased once he is arraigned.
