Reckless and negligent drivers pose a dangerous threat to both pedestrians and other motorists on the road. The most dangerous of drivers, some would argue, are those who drive under the influence. Such drivers experience reduced reaction time, lack of muscle coordination, poor balance and poor decision-making ability, among other things. Getting behind the wheel in such a state can result in serious injury to both the driver and other parties, should a car accident result.
Three young college students were recently out in the early morning hours in California. They were reportedly making a left turn at an intersection, with a green light, when an oncoming car apparently failed to stop and collided with the passenger side of their car. The driver of the car who failed to stop was arrested at the scene after authorities determined that he was driving under the influence. It was not immediately available what the driver's blood-alcohol content was. It was also not immediately clear if he suffered any injuries, but there were no indications that he was sent to a hospital for treatment.
