Eight Years for Drunk Driving Death

Back on May 24 of this year I was on my way into work my night photodesk shift when I came across an accident on Redwood Avenue where a pickup truck had slammed into the back end of a parked vehicle. All I had on me was my cellphone so I took photos hoping that everything would be OK for the guy that was being loaded onto the stretcher. I think the driver had been taken to hospital before I got there. I was told that someone else who had been riding in the box of the truck was sent to hospital in very serious condition, people on the scene didn’t think he was going to make it.

Well he didn’t make it and today the driver of that vehicle was sentenced eight years for the drunk driving death.
