An alleged drunk San Bernardino motorist crashes, kills passenger

A San Bernardino woman, who'd been riding as a passenger in a male companion's car, was killed in an early morning crash on Wednesday, Oct. 25. The accident, which resulted in the woman's death, occurred a few minutes after 1:00 a.m. that fateful morning.

Witnesses reported having seen the vehicle's male operator driving along Mountain View Avenue as he was approaching Base Line immediately prior to the accident occurring. They also told responding San Bernardino police officers that immediately after crashing his vehicle, the man exited his car and began fleeing by foot from the accident scene.

According to the accident report for the crash, it appears that the man was no longer at the crash scene when the responding officers arrived. They, however, were able to locate the man a short distance away. When they caught up with him, they placed him under arrest for a hit-and-run resulting in a serious injury or death.

By the time he was booked in jail, his booking records reflected that he'd also been charged with driving under the influence.

As for the man's female companion, emergency crews found her in serious condition as they arrived at the scene of the accident. They transported the woman to an area hospital where she soon succumbed to her injuries.

In drunken single-car crashes, it's not uncommon that not just the driver, but the passenger is injured or killed as well. If you've lost a loved one in an hit-and-run crash or one in which the driver was intoxicated at the time, then a San Bernardino wrongful death attorney may advise you of your right to sue.
