Man accused of driving drunk, causing car accident

Far too many car crashes in California involve impaired drivers. For all the potential causes of a car accident, driving while intoxicated is one that can be controlled by those who choose to consume alcohol. Families who are unfortunate enough to have their lives turned upside down by the poor choices of a drunk driver should never have to endure such senseless pain, but, time and again, too many are forced to do so. Recently, a man has been accused here in California of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after another man's life was lost in a wrong-way car accident.

Six other people died in the tragic car accident.
